We are looking to start offering outdoor family visitations with our Assisted Living Residents within the next couple of weeks. In order to ensure we are adhering to Illinois Department of Public Health Guidelines for Assisted Living Facilities, these outdoor visitations will be scheduled and highly regulated to ensure proper sanitation and social distancing guidelines are adhered to. We are looking for some dedicated volunteers to be our "Social Distancing Ambassadors" and help us ensure proper sanitation and enforce social distancing occur throughout the visits.

Shifts will occur from approximately 12:45 pm - 4:15 pm on Tuesday-Saturday. Tasks may include taking visitors' temperatures, spraying/wiping down the chairs that are being used prior to and after visits, as well as enforcing mask wearing and social distancing guidelines of the residents and their visitors. The volunteer will be provided with gloves and disinfecting materials. In addition, there will be a screening procedure that the visitors will have to complete prior to their visit.

Volunteers must commit to a full shift on a weekly basis.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to embrace the continuing vitality of our residents by fostering a loving and respectful community in which our residents’ individuality is honored, wellness is supported, faith is inspired and friendships are made.

Description

Peace Village retirement community is an Illinois not-for-profit corporation established in 1985 as a continuation of the faith-based outreach of Peace Memorial Church serving seniors in greater Chicagoland, including Palos Park, Orland Park and Tinley Park.

Construction of Peace Village began in 1988 and we welcomed our first resident in May 1989. Our Circle Inn assisted living residences and multipurpose Grewe Center opened in January 1998. In 2005, Peace Village created The Peace Professional Center, which is now home to Heart Care Centers of Illinois, as well as other medical and professional suites.

Characterized by a strong dedication to excellence and delivering the highest quality of life possible for our residents, the entire staff of Peace Village retirement community is committed to setting the best example of ethical practice and maintaining the highest standards of health and well-being in the community. We want our residents’ experience at Peace Village to be among the best of their lives.
