Sholom’s highly trained interdisciplinary Hospice team partners with the patient, family and friends to create an individualized plan of care which encourages the patient to live their life to the fullest while receiving specialized support and services.
Sholom's Medicare-certified Hospice combines ancient traditions and the traditional Jewish values of acts of loving kindness, human dignity and community, together with modern tools to offer care to terminally ill clients. While we offer specialized services to Jewish clients and their families, we serve clients from all religious and spiritual backgrounds and services are delivered wherever the patient calls home.
Hospice services are delivered wherever the patient calls home - a private residence or apartment, nursing home or assisted living residence. The Johnson Center for Hospice Care on the Shaller Family Sholom East Campus in St. Paul offers private suites designed specifically for hospice patients.
Please call (651) 328-2091 for referrals and questions.

From a Sholom Social Worker: I just spoke with Richard F (his wife was here on hospice); he expressed that during their stay here at Sholom how excellent the care was and how good of an experience they had during his wife’s final days. He stated that he is sharing how wonderful we were and recommending us to others.
