In 1996, Little Hospice opened its doors out of a desire to provide a different kind of end-of-life care: one marked by above-and-beyond service, compassion, and warmth. Today, we are the longest serving licensed residential hospice in Minnesota—still operating out of the same 8-bed home in Edina in which we began. Since our founding, we have cared for more than 5,700 patients and their families, each one an essential and beloved part of our story.
We serve people living with terminal illness who have been given a prognosis of six months or less. Our skilled nursing staff provides around-the-clock care. We have the capacity and expertise to manage a wide variety of symptoms and diagnoses that may be too complex and overwhelming for family to handle, even with the help of a visiting nurse. Along with medical care, we personalize every patient’s stay—serving any food they request at any time, providing space for family to visit and relax, and offering spiritual comfort for any religion.
