About

We are looking for Patient Companionship Volunteers at VITAS- Healthcare to visit patients on hospice residing in assisted living, nursing homes and/or their own homes located in North St. Louis County. There are many opportunities and locations available to visit patients in Florissant, Black Jack and surrounding areas.

During visits volunteers may read to patients, write letters for them, play music, games, share conversation and hobbies or simply hold their hand so they are not alone. Comprehensive training and orientation for hospice volunteering is provided. If you are interested in this exciting opportunity, please contact Emily Jokerst, at (314) 682-3400 or at Emily.Jokerst@Vitas.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
