Residential Hospice

  • 38 people are interested
RH Logo

Near the end of life, our patients have a hard time getting out to see friends and family. We are looking for someone to provide a loving presence to those no longer able to do the things they used to do. Your presence alone can make someone feel loved, listened to, and truly supported. This is a chance to bond with someone during a precious and often extremely difficult time in life.

Disclaimer: We are sorry but we can not accept any court ordered community service.

*No prior experience required. Training provided.

About Residential Hospice

Location:

1431 Opus Pl #310, Downers Grove, IL 60515, US

Mission Statement

We aspire to be the leading provider of hospice services for people in Michigan and Illinois with a life-limiting illness. We are committed to equipping our highly trained and dedicated employees with all of the resources necessary to provide extraordinary care and service. Residential Hospice provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and practical care for people in the last phases of a life-limiting illness, with an emphasis on control of pain and other symptoms. The program is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying, making it possible for them to remain independent for as long as possible in familiar surroundings. Hospice care is centered on both the patient and family/caregivers. Hospice personnel respect and respond without discrimination, to the unique differences in patients and family/caregivers and their lifestyle, values, and wishes.

Description

Residential Hospice provides a team of specially-trained professionals and volunteers to provide care, comfort, support and dignity to patients and families when their illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments.

Residential Hospice brings better care home to patients and families by offering them individualized care plans, developed with their physicians and carried out in familiar surroundings with compassion, dignity and support.

As part of the Residential Home Health family of companies, Residential Hospice is ready to provide expert medical care, emotional comfort, spiritual support and pain management to meet the needs of each patient.

Residential Hospice’s objective is caring, not curing, helping patients and their families focus their energy on the things that matter most.
