  • Ready to give back? Have you received the care and support of hospice during the end of life journey with a family member or friend? Do you wish to be a compassionate presence to a hospice patient in a home or a care facility by listening, talking, or reading? Volunteers also provide caregiver relief for family members, do not provide hands-on care, but serve as companions and advocates.
  • Northwestern Medicine Home Health & Hospice provides comprehensive training programs for volunteers that visit patients. Not only will the skills you receive during training be applicable to your volunteer service, but they’ll aid in your everyday life. More importantly, you will make an enormous impact in the lives of those you touch. We have opportunities in the morning, afternoon and evening. Weekend opportunities are also available.
