About

Looking for an opportunity to serve others in your community? Brookdale Hospice is the place for you to give comfort, support, and companionship to individuals as they near the end of their life.

How you can help:
Helping others as they near the end of their lives is a profoundly moving experience. Whether it is reading a book out loud with a patient, engaging in conversation, listening to music, or styling hair and painting a patient's nails, Brookdale Hospice welcomes volunteers to utilize their personal interests and unique skillsets. If direct contact with patients is not for you, keep in mind there are many ways to help as a volunteer, such as clerical work, light housekeeping, letter writing, and assisting at events.


Where you can help:
Brookdale Hospice has a variety of locations in the Chicagoland area (see below). This allows volunteers a multitude of opportunities to serve different communities.

Potential volunteer locations include: Hoffman Estates on Golf Rd., Hoffman Estates on Barrington Rd., Des Plaines, Prospect Heights, Vernon Hills, Hawthorn Lakes, Northbrook, Oak Park, Orland Park, Burr Ridge, Lisle, Glen Ellyn, Chicago - Lakeshore, Chicago - Lakeview
