TAP Call Volunteers

These volunteers make phone calls to patients and/or their families each week/weekend to check-in and visit with them. Calls can be made from the volunteer's home or the VITAS office. These are not crisis-intervention calls, just check-in calls to visit briefly and inquire about any patient/family needs. No long distance calls are required.
