Volunteer in your community and set your own schedule! JourneyCare is looking for volunteers who are licensed cosmetologists 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 (haircut, mani-pedi, or makeup). Then your volunteer coordinator will reach out to you to see if you're available and answer any questions.
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.
Example of previous requests:
-Patient and daughter wanted to do one last Mother's Day spa experience so a licensed cosmetologist came to their home to fulfill the wish.
- A pediatric family's wish was to have a family portrait so a volunteer cosmetologist came out to get them photo ready.

It's our goal to make every moment count and often a simple thing like a haircut or beauty treatment can make someone's day so much better! To provide each patient with comfort and dignity is our goal.

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.
