About

We are looking for Patient Care Volunteers at VITAS Healthcare to visit patients on hospice residing in assisted living, nursing homes and/or their own homes located in South St. Louis County and Jefferson County. Patient Care Volunteers offer companionship, play music, games, read to patients and help in other meaningful ways. Volunteers are the heart of VITAS Healthcare providing friendly, non-medical patient and family care through offering individualized support services.

Volunteers are matched with a VITAS patient to provide specific, non- medical care through socializing through friendly visits. Every VITAS volunteer receives training in hospice philosophy, how to support patients/families, health and safety precautions and more. Days and times for volunteering are flexible according to your availability. For more information, please contact Emily Jokerst at (314) 682-3434 or at Emily.Jokerst@VITAS.com
