About

Volunteers are the heart of our hospice team. We depend on our hospice volunteers to help us provide the extra care our patients and their families need. Volunteers have a tremendous impact on the lives of the patients that they serve.

Volunteers offer support, companionship and compassionate help to our patients:

  • Volunteers provide a nurturing environment for patients and families.
  • Volunteers spend time with our patients sitting and talking.
  • Volunteers spend time with our patients reading and socializing.
  • Volunteers do not provide any hands on care.

As a hospice volunteer, you will be oriented to the hospice program so you can understand our caring philosopy and goals. You will not be asked to become a family counselor, just a non-judgemental listener and friend.

Volunteers offer support to our patients in private homes or facilities in the Glen Ellyn area.
