Volunteering is very rewarding. As a volunteer, you can make a difference in another person’s life. You’ll feel a sense of accomplishment by improving the quality of life of someone at the end of life. You can also establish meaningful relationships with patients, their families and our hospice team.

How can you help patients and families?

  • Listening as a patient shares memories, feelings, fears
  • Filling in to give a family caregiver a short, needed break
  • Making supportive calls and visits to bereaved family members and friends
  • Telephoning patients and families to offer reassurance and comfort
  • Providing administrative support in the VITAS office
  • Running errands, performing light housekeeping chores
  • Visiting lonely hospice patients in nursing homes
  • Reading, playing games, listening to music with a patient
  • Taking a patient on an outing

All VITAS volunteers receive comprehensive training that includes hospice philosophy, caring for the terminally ill and grief and loss education. We then match your talents and interests with available volunteer roles.
