What's Important Today
Social Workers • Volunteers • Nurses • Hospice Aides

What's the most important thing to you today? As we navigate, adapt, and grow, we wanted to highlight the amazing work of our clinicians and front-line healthcare heroes: social workers and counselors, volunteers, nurses, and hospice aides. It's important to know that they are still here and making sure patient and family wishes are our top priority. The past few months have been challenging, yet our mission stands strong to enhance the quality of life for individuals and their loved ones touched by a terminal illness. Thank you for trusting 40 years of caring to Hospice of Southern Illinois.

Help us celebrate 40 years of caring by leaving a Google Review, listening to our podcast, becoming a volunteer, following our social media pages, attending an event, or making a donation.

We Can't MASK
Our Gratitude For Everything You Do

April is Volunteer Month. While we sadly have had to cancel our annual appreciation dinners this past year, we made sure to show them lots of safe gratitude, love, and appreciation for all their patience, dedication and support during the Pandemic. Everyone's role has changed, including volunteers. They have shown their hospice heart and can't wait to get back to their new normal!

Happy Mother's Day
