About

Volunteer in your community and set your own schedule! JourneyCare is looking for volunteers who are Licensed Massage Therapists and/or Reiki Practitioners who can periodically meet the special needs and requests of our hospice patients.

Our patients live in their own homes (private residences and/or senior living communities) or they may be temporarily receiving care at one of our five hospice centers (Barrington, Woodstock, Glenview, Arlington Heights, & Chicago).

How do I know when I'm needed? A patient's nurse or social worker will put in a request for your services. Then your volunteer coordinator will reach out to you to see if you're available and answer any questions. Additionally JourneyCare's Massage Therapists will be available for profesional collaboration.
How far will I have to travel?
You tell us how far you are willing to travel. JourneyCare serves patients throughout 10 counties in Northern Illinois.
Common Massage Therapy Requests:
-Massage Therapy is requested for non pharmaceutical pain management.
-A way to connect with socially isolated patients.
-The use of massage has been proven to relieve stress, depression, muscle tension, poor circulation.
