Caring for a dying loved one is anything but easy...but with hospice from OSF Home Care Services you can surround them with friends and family in the comfort of their own home, nursing home or assisted living facility. Our team of highly-trained, compassionate experts takes care to the next level.
Hospice is for patients of all ages with a life-limiting illness, with a prognosis of six months or less to live, who have decided not to pursue curative or life prolonging treatment and instead want to focus on palliative (comfort) care.
To make a referral, please call (800) 673-5288.

Ways to Volunteer
Hospice volunteers are trained to ensure they are comfortable and knowledgeable about hospice before they begin at OSF Home Care Services.
Our volunteers read to patients, do handiwork around their homes or assist with clerical work in the office.
