Charitable gifts are vital to Advocate Home Health Services and Hospice
When a loved one is facing the end of life, you want to do everything you can to make it a time of comfort and peace. The Advocate Hospice team is made up of skilled, compassionate caregivers who are committed to fulfill our mission to "Make Every Day Count," by providing excellent end-of-life medical care with a focus on each patient and family's unique emotional, practical and spiritual needs. Your support can help us assure that Advocate Hospice's exceptional level of care and commitment can be available to every family when they need it most.
Home health care is an increasingly vital component of the health care continuum. Patients receive home-based care for many reasons, including recovery after a hospital stay for an illness, surgical procedure or injury, as well as for care involving chronic conditions. Advocate Home Health Services is a well-recognized resource for comprehensive home health care and equipment. Our innovative approaches have earned us a place in the top tier of home-health providers nationwide. Your gift to Advocate Home Health Services will help us continue this proud tradition.

Advocate at Home Secured Visits Program
Advocate’s home health and hospice nurses sometimes face challenges in getting to patients’ homes because of safety concerns. Visiting nurses who work in tough neighborhoods have witnessed gang activity, drug deals—and, at times, shootings. To keep our caregivers safe and meet the needs of our patients, Advocate at Home contracts with a company that employs security officers—many with police experience—to accompany nurses making visits in high-crime locations. WGN-TV reporter Dina Bair recently highlighted the Advocate at Home Secured Visits Program. Watch the story.
Below is a list of funds at Advocate Home Health and Hospice that currently need your support.

Your gift makes it possible for Advocate Hospice to offer our alternative therapies program, bringing massage, music and pet therapies to our patients. Your gift also supports our Daybreak bereavement program, which includes newsletters, support groups and special initiatives such as the Artful Healing workshop. Most importantly, your support helps us ensure that Advocate Hospice's excellent and compassionate care can be available to all families who need it, regardless of their resources.
