Loyola Medicine Hospice

Loyola Medicine Hospice needs people who are willing to sit with hospice patients and talk with them about their lives, their interests, or whatever else the patient wants to talk about. In some cases the caregivers or family may leave (for an hour or two) to pick up medication or run errands knowing that someone is still at home to look after their loved one.

Most volunteers will see patients once a week for one or two hours until the patient is discharged from hospice. Some then go on to the next patient while others take a break.

Loyola Medicine Hospice needs all kinds of people to serve as volunteers. Training is provided in our Oak Brook office and volunteering can take place in patient homes, at the hospital, or at a skilled nursing facility. There are also plenty of opportunities to help out in the office.

Description

For patients experiencing life-limiting illnesses or injuries, Loyola Medicine’s hospice program provides compassionate and comprehensive care to adult and pediatric patients. Hospice care is for patients with terminal illness or injury and intended to provide comfort and relief from pain, allowing for the highest quality of life possible during the time that remains.

Loyola’s skilled doctors, nurses, therapists, chaplains and home health aides provide care that focuses not only on medical issues, but also emotional and spiritual needs. Care is provided in the patient's home, with inpatient care for symptom control and pain management provided at Loyola University Medical Center. Respite care is provided at skilled nursing facilities or at long-term care facilities in the community.

Loyola’s hospice team also provides support for the patient’s family, providing counseling, comfort and guidance on caring for your loved one with dignity. Loyola’s hospice care team is available 24/7.

Loyola’s Home Health Services and Hospice Care is a Medicare-certified, Illinois Department of Public Health-licensed home care and hospice.
