Northern Illinois Hospice is founded on the simple principle that terminally ill patients and their families deserve extraordinary, compassionate care that provides the utmost in comfort, dignity and peace of mind.
By controlling pain and alleviating stress associated with a serious illness, we maximize your opportunity to spend meaningful, joyful moments together. It's really about quality of life for you - the patient - and your family and loved ones.
Focused on You
You and your family are at the heart of everything we do. Our patient-focused team works together to develop a personalized care plan based on your decisions and your needs. And that begins by listening carefully to you so we can fully understand your unique needs - physical, emotional, social and spiritual.
Setting the Standard for More Than 35 Years
As the region's first and most experienced hospice, Northern Illinois Hospice has been setting the standard for quality end-of-life care for 35 years. As one of the nation's first hospices, thousands of families have turned to us for assistance. We often hear from area physicians and nursing facilities that we provide hospice care the way it should be done.
While all hospices in the U.S. are mandated by the federal government to provide certain services to terminally ill individuals, not all hospices are the same. We set the standard when we introduced the concept of hospice in this community in 1979, and we continue to raise the bar year after year.
