Make every moment count for those touched by serious illness and loss.
The mission of JourneyCare is to make every moment count for those touched by serious illness and loss. We provide pain and symptom management and end-of-life expertise to residents of a 10-county service area in northern Illinois. Offering both in-home care and five Hospice CareCenters, we are known for our broad continuum of care and innovative programming.
Beyond traditional services and a comprehensive bereavement program, we have the largest pediatric hospice and palliative care program in Illinois and we embrace non-traditional therapies as well as open access for patients receiving aggressive treatment.
Our mission is achieved by a team of board-certified physicians and highly-skilled nurses, therapists, counselors, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers; 40% of our clinical employees (who are eligible for certification) are certified in hospice and palliative care.
JourneyCare has never turned anyone away due to inability to pay because our promise is to meet the patient where they are, build trust, and share the journey, regardless of reimbursement rates. We seek to put the patient in control of their care--because it's the patient's experience and the family's memory.
We are here to help when patients and families need it most. We begin by listening and answering the questions of those who come to us. We know that each experience is personal--and so is our care. We offer the physical, emotional, and spiritual support that's needed to welcome each new day.
