About

Volunteers are the heart of hospice. Hospice relies on volunteers to help with administrative work and provide end-of-life support for each patient and family. Our Volunteers are trained in hospice care, grief and loss, spirituality, communication skills and care and comfort. Direct patient care volunteers provide visits, phone calls, bereavement services, companionship, respite time for caregivers, and memory sharing. Office volunteers may assist with typing, filing, mailings and other office duties. All volunteers will receive training.

We are currently in need of volunteers who are willing to visit hospice patients in their homes in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. Volunteers who are Spanish or Polish speaking a plus! Administrative volunteers are also welcome anytime.

We welcome you as a volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering with Capital Hospice & Palliative Care, please contact volunteer coordinator Tiffany Kasper at 630-581-5492. You can also reach our volunteer coordinator by e-mail at tkasper@capitalhpc.com.
