Sometimes people facing the end of life require care beyond what a family can offer. In such times, The Pillars offers a place to call home. The Pillars Hospice Home was the first residential hospice in the Twin Cities' East Metro area. Supported by HealthEast Foundation and a generous community, The Pillars opened in April 2000. We take our name and purpose from the pillars of faith, hope and love. At The Pillars, end of life needs are met with compassionate, respectful care.
Our care team works with the patient and the family, emphasizing emotional, spiritual and physical well-being. We consider Hospice honorable and meaningful and we truly understand the level of comfort and compassion you need during such an emotional and difficult time.
The Pillars has a 24-hour on-site nursing staff. Our highly skilled RNs, LPNs and certified home health aides are prepared to manage the most complex medical needs. Their empathy and competence make them ideal caregivers on this journey through the end of life.
