About

VITAS Healthcare is looking for kind and caring people to help terminally ill patients and their families -- just by being there. Many of our patients live at home with family members or friends who rarely get the opportunity to leave the house because they are devoted to caring for their ill loved ones. Relief care (sitting with a patient while the caregiver takes a break) is one of our biggest volunteer needs. For caregivers to have the opportunity to run an errand, go see a movie, go to a doctor’s appointment or go on an outing can work wonders to renew their energy and better equip them for the responsibilities of care-giving.

Opportunities are flexible and caregiver relief volunteer shifts are no more than 2 hours. Anytime you are able to dedicate as a caregiver relief volunteer is greatly appreciated. For more information on this opportunity, please contact Emily Jokerst at (314) 682-3400 or at Emily.Jokerst@Vitas.com. For more information on VITAS, visit www.VITAS.com.
