About

hAt the end of life, a Veteran appreciates the companionship of another Veteran. Do you wish to be a compassionate presence to a Veteran 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.
  • Northwestern Medicine Home Health & Hospice (formerly CNS Home Health & Hospice) is non-profit, accredited by The Joint Commission, Medicare certified, and licensed by the State of Illinois.

Fall training runs Sept. 15 through Nov. 3, 2016 from 1-4 pm at Nortwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital, Geneva, IL.

Winter training will start in January 2017.
