Be A Hospice Volunteer!

VITAS provides hospice services to individuals dealing with terminal illness and is looking for kind and caring people to help terminally ill patients and their families.

Friendly visits, simple errands, providing a listening ear and the gift of friendship at a crucial time can make a real difference in another's life. 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 or in a nursing home; run errands to the grocery store, drug store, post office.

No clinical experience is needed. Volunteers don't provide clinical care but instead provide companionship and support to patients and families.
