Spotlight On: JourneyCare

Posted on November 5, 2018

Quality of life is fundamental to our mission at TDFF and we are proud of our long-standing partnership with JourneyCare, providing comprehensive and compassionate care for adults, children, and families facing severe illness.

JourneyCare is one of only five organizations in the United States with a hospice program specifically for children.

With 40 years of healthcare leadership and expertise, JourneyCare has achieved national recognition for growth, innovation, community partnerships, and best practices in caring for adults and children with serious illness. JourneyCare is the largest nonprofit provider of palliative, supportive, and end-of-life care in Illinois and serves nearly 3,000 adult and pediatric patients and their families each day across 10 counties in the Chicago region. The agency also provides services that include JourneyCare House Calls, Chronic Care Management, and JourneyCare Choices – serving patients at all stages of serious illness. JourneyCare is dedicated to enriching lives through expert, compassionate care and empowering patients and families to live with dignity, on their own terms.

JourneyCare shares the stories of some of the many families for which it has provided services:
