Hospice Volunteers serve with Passion and Purpose. We are searching for volunteers who are willing to help add quality of life to end of life. Volunteers are happiness arriving at the door! Social Distancing and appropriate PPE is required for all volunteer activities. COVID precautions including proof of full vaccination is also required.

Volunteers can choose from programs including Companions (Non-medical Friendly Visiting), Music Companions (live or recorded music for entertainment), Together We Serve (teams of 2I) patient visits, Love on Leashes Pet Team, or We Honor Veterans. Volunteers in our Southwestern counties are especially needed.

No experience is necessary. Training and support are provided. While some visits are restricted due to the pandemic, other requests for volunteers are fully open and available. This is the perfect opportunity to join our volunteer teams. We serve patients at home or in Skilled Nursing Care, in 16 counties of the greater Chicago area. Volunteer assignments are close to where you live or work at hours convenient to you.

If you have a compassionate heart and a willingness to learn, we want to talk to you.
