Kindred Hospice - Our Care Matters

Kindred Hospice is looking for volunteers who can do in-person visits with patients in the south suburbs of Chicago. Just about all of these patients are in skilled nursing homes or memory care centers. Kindred hospice serves patients in the greater Chicagoland area who are on hospice services, meaning that each has a life-limiting illness with a life expectancy of six months or fewer. We are also very intentional about honoring our veteran; we welcome veteran volunteers.

As a volunteer Kindred asks that you visit your patient three times per month for 30 minutes or longer each visit. We provide you with training and will accompany you on your first visit.

Volunteers are subject to the same onboarding requirements as paid staff members are: background check, fingerprinting, physical, drug screen, and TB test. Kindred Hospice pays for all of that so there is no cost to you. Kindred will also supply you with PPE.

We are very (very) very flexible and grateful for all of our volunteers. As such, we let you decide how much time you want to commit to volunteering, what days you want to volunteer, and when you want to come in for training. We are very (very) very easy to get along with. And our staff is very (very) very friendly.

For faster response, please call Steven Dickens, Volunteer Coordinator, Kindred Hospice at: 708-409-3040 but it is also okay to go through normal channels using volunteermatch.
