JourneyCare has achieved national recognition for growth, innovation, community partnerships and best practices in caring for adults and children with serious illness. As part of our volunteer team, respite care volunteers provide caregivers a temporary relief from caregiving.
Thank you to WIFR TV Rockford for sharing how our volunteers are helped the Hubert family in Roscoe, Il:
Kelly Hubert spends a lot of her time at home caring for her daughter Livia, who is in need of constant care. “Kelly has several weekly obligations that require her to leave her house, but since she isn’t able to leave Livia alone, she relies on the support of volunteers from an organization called JourneyCare, who spend time with Livia while her family is away,” WIFR reports.
