OSF Richard L. Owens Hospice Home

When families make the difficult decision to shift focus from battling illness to seeking comfort and peace, the OSF Richard L. Owens Hospice Home provides the specialized end-of-life care they need. The Hospice Home allows terminally ill patients to receive 24-hour comfort care in a home-like, serene setting. It is the first hospice home in central Illinois and only the fourth such facility in the state of Illinois.

Our Hospice Home is a place of hope and dignity. Families often express how consoling it is to be with loved ones in a place where their emotional, physical, and spiritual needs are fulfilled. With round-the-clock assistance, it’s a place for families to be together, enjoy the company of one another, and cherish happy memories.

Since opening in March 2013, we have cared for more than 1,500 patients and touched the lives of more than 30,000 family members and friends.

Your gift to the Hospice Home endowment supports the continued mission to provide care to those at the end of life. In addition, gifts to the Hospice Home will support grief counseling, respite care, and volunteer orientation and education.

Hospice is about cherishing the gift of life to the full until God transforms that gift into eternal life. It is about supporting individuals with competent, compassionate caregivers so they can make that journey well with their family and loved ones in the face of chronic, progressive or life-threatening illness.
