About

VITAS wants to enlist your services to care for terminally ill veterans living at home and in nursing homes, assisted living communities and medical centers. VITAS Veteran Volunteers do not need to be U.S. Veterans; you need only the desire to remember; honor and support America’s living heroes.

VITAS Veteran Volunteers visit terminally ill veterans; assist by shopping and other errands;listen to life stories or record or videotape a veteran’s reminiscences; telephone veterans to ask how they are doing; attend or help plan activities celebrating Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day; educate veteran’s groups about hospice services by speaking at their meetings.

VITAS Veteran Volunteers who have served in the military themsleves also provide an individual recognition ceremony to every Veteran upon admission to VITAS services. Veteran to Veteran you provide great comfort, validation and a safe ear.
