  • 1 person is interested

Many patients may feel isolated or long for their home and loved ones. With our Supportive Hands program, volunteers create a calm and comforting environment that helps patients relax and feel at ease. Patients get support through physical touch and a hand and arm massage while they listen to the peaceful sounds of a babbling brook, amazon rainforest, or anything else that brings them tranquility. Massage training is provided as well as shadowing with Unity’s massage therapist.

Our staff and volunteers service the areas in which they live. Our office provides care to patients in seventeen counties in Northern Illinois. We provide a wide variety of opportunities and meet you where you are!

We welcome questions about this volunteer position. Please feel free to contact us, even if you're unsure this is the right fit for you! Let's talk about what meets your needs and has an impact on the people who need your time and talents.
