Kindred Hospice - Our Care Matters

About

Do you love reading, chatting, drawing, or singing?
Are you a loving individual who enjoys spending time with seniors?
Do you have a big heart and couple hours a week to share?
Can you make a reliable commitment to someone who may not have many (or any) visitors?

If so, you may be our best new hospice volunteer!

We are currently recruiting for Patient Care Volunteers to donate an hour or two a week to read to, chat, sing or simply offer the gift of companionship with our hospice patients who have little or no extended family. At Kindred Hospice we offer compassionate care for patients and their families facing life-limiting illnesses. We'd love your help in providing "circles of home" for individuals entering the final stages of life.

Volunteers may visit patients at home or in facilities. Hours are flexible, and the type of commitment varies from patient to patient.

We are looking for volunteers in all areas of Chicago, with a particular emphasis on Romeoville, Plainfield and Lockport.
