Relief Care Volunteers Needed


Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


We see patients in 9 Western PA counties!Sewickley, PA 15143


At VITAS Healthcare, we not only serve terminally ill patients, but also their families.

Caregivers are the family, friends and loved ones that care for an ill patient 24/7. Sometimes the patient cannot be left alone at all - and the caregiver must rely on others to sit with their loved one while they run simple errands, attend worship services, attend appointments, or even to grab lunch with a friend.

One of our most requested volunteer services, Relief Care, or "Sitting" Volunteers, would sit with patients in their home while their caregiver got a much deserved break. The volunteer would bring peace and confidence for the caregiver to leave.
