VITAS is looking for kind and caring people to help terminally ill patients and their families. Friendly visits, providing a listening ear, and the gift of friendship at a crucial time can make a real difference in another's life.

Other VITAS volunteer activities include: relief care (sit with a patient while the caregiver takes a break); friendly visits to patients and their families at home, in a nursing home or assisted living facility, reading, playing music and games and other activities.


VITAS Volunteer orientation is provided to help you learn the skills required to be an outstanding hospice volunteer. Time and dates are ongoing and flexible.

VITAS takes pride in its volunteers, and we welcome you to become part of our team. There are many locations throughout the Bay area.
