Volunteer for Hospice

Come join our Sanctuary Hospice Volunteer Team on your own time!

Sanctuary Hospice's volunteers are provided the preparation and training they need to comfortably and successfully complete their chosen assignments. Sanctuary Hospice has multiple office locations where we serve patients located across Illinois.

There are Two Types of Volunteers

  1. Patient Care Volunteers are part of a patient’s care team. They make home visits to offer companionship for patients and relief for caregivers. Examples of patient care volunteer opportunities include reading to the patient, assisting with a hobby, listening, running errands, or grocery shopping.
  2. Organizational Volunteers  work in our offices to support our care team or help patients and families. Such as assisting with phones, copying, filing, data entry, mailing, assembling information, computer work, creating special memories for holidays, patient birthdays, and anniversaries.
