About

VITAS Healthcare provides hospice services to terminally ill patients and is looking for kind and caring people to help those 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; read a book or newspaper to a patient, make a music playlist and just listen.

No clinical experience is needed. Volutneers simply provide companionship and support when it's needed most. We'll train you on everything you need to know!
