VITAS Healthcare is looking for Caregiver Relief Volunteers for patients residing in their own homes in the Jefferson County area. Caregiver Relief Volunteers provide a short break so the caregiver can run an errand, see a movie, go to a doctor's appointment, go on an outing, etc. Caregiver volunteers typically spend 2 hours with a home patient per visit.

Volunteers are matched with a VITAS patient to provide specific, non- medical care through socializing through friendly visits. Every VITAS volunteer receives training in hospice philosophy, how to support patients/families, health and safety precautions and more. Days and times for volunteering are flexible according to your availability. For more information, please contact Emily Jokerst at (314) 682-3434 or at
