Job Opportunity for Nursing Students: Solace Friends

Solace Home is the keystone initiative of Solace Friends, Inc., a non-profit organization working to bridge the existing gaps in end-of-life care for individuals experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity.

Solace Home is a licensed 4-bed Adult Family Home in Madison that provides housing and caregiving support for persons with a terminal illness who are experiencing homelessness, housing insecurity, or extreme poverty.

Solace Friends/Solace Home is not a hospice provider. All Solace Home residents will receive hospice care from community hospice agencies and Solace Home caregivers will serve as the residents “family”, providing assistance with activities such as bathing, toileting, dressing, transfers, and mobility, as well as companionship, meal preparation, cleaning, and laundry.

Solace Home Caregivers will embody empathy and compassion to provide residents with person-centered care that nurtures their comfort and dignity. For more details about Solace Friends’ mission, vision, values and goals, please visit

Solace Home would be an excellent place for nursing students to work as a caregiver during their nursing education as hours are flexible and pay is generous. For more information about the position and to apply, see the attached PDF.
