In 2013, the American Nursing Association noted the National Nurses Week theme as providing quality and innovation in patient care. “Hospice of Southern Illinois nurses represents the 2013 theme as much as any nursing team could. They not only provide the best care possible, they provide care as an art form and with compassion. Innovation brings our team to a new level. They are always working on new projects, researching new products, and exploring the cutting edge options for end-of-life care. I think so highly of them, I would call them to take care of my own family when that time comes. I think when you recommend your own to take care of your own, it speaks volumes!” says Christine Juehne, Print and Social Media Coordinator.

Like every year, we are currently celebrating our volunteers all April long! Something even more special than usual, our volunteers were recognized as Unsung Heroes for their time, dedication, and service to our mission; enhancing the quality of life for individuals and their loved ones touched by a terminal illness. No act of volunteering is too small. Volunteers all have a hospice heart and help with everything from office work to sitting with patients during their last breaths on this earth. Some volunteers are even refered to as angels! Take a glimpse of what volunteering at Hospice of Southern Illinois is all about!
