Being a friend to someone during the last stages of life is truly an honor.

Patient visitors provide companionship to hospice patients by listening, playing games, reading...the list is endless! Visits are tailored to reflect the needs and personalities of each patient.

No experience is required; training is provided.

Family Hospice is a not-for-profit agency. We have been providing compassionate and professional care for twenty-nine years in the Illinois counties of Clinton, Madison, Monroe, Randolph, St. Clair and Washington.
