Real People – Real Care – Your Family

A Message From Our CEO, Mary K. Sheehan












As our communities address and manage the COVID-19 risk, please know that Joliet Area Community Hospice continues to provide hospice care, palliative care and bereavement services at the Hospice Home, at patient residences or in care facilities.

We are following all safety and health guidelines put out by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) on how to handle this concern within hospice organizations.

Should you or a loved one need palliative or hospice care, we continue to admit new patients during this time. If you or a family member have any questions or concerns, please contact a member of your hospice care team or me at 815.740.4104.


For the safety of all, we are limiting patients in the Hospice Home to two visitors in the building at one time. We have instituted CDC’s Travel Guidelines (Levels 2 & 3) screening for all visitors and staff entering the Hospice Home including a temperature check. Visitors are welcome at the in-patient unit provided they meet the criteria that limits risks to their loved ones and others.


As requested by Governor Pritzker, we are postponing all large events scheduled for March and April. This includes our Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans event which was scheduled for March 21, our Volunteer Appreciation Event scheduled for April 14 and Annual Dinner, scheduled for April 20.  It is our top priority to keep our patients, families, staff and guests of our events safe. New dates have not yet been finalized for these events.

We will continue to monitor all situations and will update as needed. Please be healthy and safe.

Mary K. Sheehan, CEO

From Our Families

Thank you, Joliet Area Community Hospice staff and volunteers. I can’t say it with words how much you all helped me through this difficult time. Your whole staff was wonderful and so kind. I know Mom is at peace and you all helped to make that happen. All she wanted was to go home. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and God bless you all.

Susan Wicks, daughter of Virginia Sagert
