Volunteer near where you live or work!

Kindred Hospice is looking for people who would like to go into nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and/or memory care centers (all around Chicago) to sit with our patients and be a friend. You can sit and talk, play games, watch TV/movies, color, play cards, read aloud, do word searches or crossword puzzles, play music, look at photos, go outside, walk around the facility, or any other kind of meaningful activity you think your patient might enjoy.

After training your first visit will be with the volunteer coordinator who will introduce you to your patient and who you how to document your visit. Kindred will provide PPE to you for free. You will NEVER EVER see patients who are positive for COVID-19 or any other infectious disease.

As a volunteer you are an important part of the team! We will train you and provide ongoing training so you can learn new skills. We want this to be an experience that is beneficial to both you and the patient so that everyone's needs are met.

We will work with your schedule. You decide your start/end times according to what is best for you.

You must be vaccinated for Covid-19.
