St. Croix Hospice
Agency Description: At St. Croix Hospice, we work to provide the highest quality care for patients diagnosed with a life-limiting illness.

We believe that moments of joy can be found through meaningful and respectful connections even during challenging times.
Position Description: As a companion volunteer for St. Croix Hospice, you will visit patients and offer support through conversation, listening, activities or just a calm presence. The visits may involve reading, walking or helping patients attend activities in their facilities. Visiting times are flexible and are individualized to our patients’ and volunteers’ schedules. We will place volunteers in a convenient location. We request a time commitment of one hour per week. To volunteer, you must be 18 years old, pass a criminal background check and fingerprint screen as required by the State of Minnesota, and complete a cost-free Mantoux (TB) screening. You must also complete an orientation/training session as required by Medicare.
