About

We are currently looking for a volunteer to visit veteran patients on hospice at Missouri Veterans Home. Missouri Veterans Home is located at 10600 Lewis and Clark Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63136.

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; drive and/or accompany a veteran to appointments, shopping and other events; help a veteran apply for benefits or learn about available assistance; help replace lost or stolen military medals by contacting appropriate agencies; 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.

For more information on this volunteer opportunity, please contact Emily Jokerst at (314) 682-3400 or at Emily.Jokerst@Vitas.com.
