Northfield Hospice Volunteer Program
Northfield Hospice also has a strong volunteer component. Volunteers are important team members who help with visiting hospice patients and families, help with errands when appropriate and help facilitate responses to need as they arise.
Hospice volunteers receive special education training to help them understand the issues important to patients and families dealing with terminal illness. If you are interested in this type of volunteer experience, contact Kerry Hjelmgren, hospice volunteer coordinator, at 507-646-1106. For more information, please click here.
