About

VITAS Healthcare is looking for volunteers to visit hospice 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. Yours, too!


During visits, volunteers can read to patients, play games, music, share activities and talents or simply spend quality time listening to their stories. Visits made by volunteers not only help the patient but the families as well. VITAS volunteers provide relief visits for caregivers so they can run errands, go to church or simply take time for themselves.

VITAS Healthcare(r) has many volunteer opportunities and positions available throughout the St. Louis, St. Charles and Jefferson County areas. Training and orientation is provided free of charge to help you learn the skills required to be an outstanding hospice volunteer. Days and times are flexible according to your schedule and availability. Volunteers typically spend an hour a week with patients and your time is greatly appreciated.

For more information on VITAS Healthcare volunteer opportunities, please contact Emily Jokerst at (314) 682-3400 or at Emily.Jokerst@Vitas.com Thanks again and we look forward to hearing from you!
