Mission Statement


At Compassion & Choices, we:

Support
individuals and families facing important end-of-life decisions.

Educate
the public, health care professionals, lawmakers and the media on end-of-life issues.

Advocate
for compassionate end-of-life care in legislatures, in courtrooms and at bedsides.

Description

We are currently seeking individuals who might be interested in being trained as client support volunteers in the Chicago area.

Client support volunteers work directly with individual clients who live within their communities. Our volunteers help clients to effectively navigate the health care system, gain access to palliative and hospice care, complete advance medical directives, and be in charge of their own dying.

The role of a client support volunteer is fairly challenging work - both physically and emotionally. We seek individuals who have professional or life experiences that equip them to work comfortably with dying clients, their families and friends.

This work is also highly rewarding and allows volunteers the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of our clients and their loved ones.

If you, or someone you know, is interested in learning more about this exciting volunteer opportunity please contact:
