Pepper Family Hospice CareCenter
While working at the Pepper Family Hospice CareCenter (405 Lake Zurich Road, Barrington), volunteers support patients, families and staff in an acute-care, fast-paced environment. This 16-bed homelike hospice center is nestled in a beautifully wooded area with picnic and play areas and miles of walking paths. Unique and meaningful assignments include: Hospitality Volunteer, CNA Assist, Care Companion, Baker/Shopper Volunteer and Activity Volunteer

Volunteer in your community and set your own schedule! JourneyCare is looking for volunteers to serve at our Hospice CareCenter in Barrington.

This is an acute care setting where we offer several unique roles for volunteers:

  • CNA Assist Volunteers are paired with a Certified Nursing Assistant and help with a patient's "activities of daily living," such as feeding, bathing, changing linens, etc. Specialized training is provided to help prepare volunteers to provide this tender care to our patients.
  • TCC Assit - assist Team Care Coordinator (unit secretary) with clerical tasks such as answering phones and call lights, faxing important documents, providing tours of the hospice unit, and so on.
  • Care Companions visit with patients and families and provide an extra layer of support through simple conversation, playing a game, watching television, etc. They also help with re-stocking and other light duties around the unit.

Each of these roles was intentionally designed to meet needs of our patients, families and staff members, even the smallest act can have a big impact. The Care Center is open 24/7 and shifts are typically 3 hours. Your schedule can be set or flexible.

Mission Statement

Enriching lives through expert and compassionate care. JourneyCare's Vision: Transforming lives by building a community where exceptional palliative, supportive and end - of- life care is accepted, expected and available to all.

Description

JourneyCare's Vision:

Transforming lives by building a community where exceptional palliative, supportive and end-of-life care is accepted, expected and available to all.

We provide pain and symptom management and end-of-life expertise to residents of a 13-county service area in northern Illinois. Offering both in-home care and five Hospice CareCenters, we are known for our broad continuum of care and innovative programming.

Beyond traditional services and a comprehensive bereavement program, we have the largest pediatric hospice and palliative care program in Illinois and we embrace non-traditional therapies as well as open access for patients receiving aggressive treatment.

Our mission is achieved by a team of board-certified physicians and highly-skilled nurses, therapists, counselors, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers.

JourneyCare has never turned anyone away due to inability to pay because our promise is to meet the patient where they are, build trust, and share the journey, regardless of reimbursement rates. We seek to put the patient in control of their care--because it's the patient's experience and the family's memory.

We are here to help when patients and families need it most. We begin by listening and answering the questions of those who come to us. We know that each experience is personal--and so is our care. We offer the physical, emotional, and spiritual support that's needed to welcome each new day.
