Angels Grace Hospice & Palliative Care, Illinois


Meet Barb Klermund, Angels Grace Hospice & Palliative Care Volunteer Coordinator.

Barb joins our team with a heartfelt story. Leading up to this moment, a few years ago, Barb was searching for meaningful work and at the same time she had a lovely elderly friend whose wife was on hospice. After meeting with her friend, he passed along a business card, and that card was from Angels Grace Hospice.

Shortly after this meeting, Barb’s own father unfortunately became ill, and she put everything on pause to take care of him. Then, when she was able to, she sought out the opportunity to give back, and joined Angels Grace Hospice & Palliative Care. “It’s hard to lose that hospice heart”, says Barb.

Barb enjoys spending time with our volunteers and also in the field with patients. She recruits, trains, and places each volunteer on an individual basis to meet the needs of our patients. Her passion in this role, and her compassion for everyone that she works with, makes our volunteer program the success that it is.

Angels Grace Hospice & Palliative Care is working to provide more volunteer opportunities for the community to engage with our patients. If you would like to become involved with us as a volunteer, please fill this form out.
