During these uncertain times, how can we help?

VITAS Healthcare wants to enlist your services to provide recognition and support to terminally ill veterans living at home and in nursing homes, assisted living communities and medical centers. Veterans enjoy receiving visitors-people who will listen to their fading memories and reminiscences.
Members of the VITAS Healthcare Veteran Volunteer team who are U.S. military veterans or active military themselves present recognition ceremonies. Nonmilitary members of this team provide ongoing support in a number of other ways.
Volunteer orientation teaches the skills required to be a hospice volunteer. VITAS Healthcare Veteran Volunteers are further trained to meet specific end-of-life needs of veterans to improve their quality of life. Time and dates are ongoing and flexible. Orientation and training to be a VITAS Healthcare Veteran Volunteer is free.

VITAS Healthcare recognizes the importance of a strong and innovative program. Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice program, allowing VITAS Healthcare to continue personalizing, enhancing and expanding services offered to patients and families. By exemplifying the VITAS Healthcare Values, volunteers serve as patient and family advocates and are proactive in meeting the needs of patients and families. VITAS Healthcare integrates volunteers into the hospice team by actively recruiting, training, supporting and creatively utilizing volunteers to meet patient and family needs. Volunteers and their contributions are respected and valued.
Volunteers are the heart of VITAS Healthcare, providing friendly, non-medical patient and family care and offering support services in our office. VITAS Healthcare is looking for volunteers who are able to share their time with hospice patients living at home, nursing homes or ALF. Hospice volunteers give their time to terminally ill patients and their caregivers during a critical time. In orientation classes they are trained in listening skills, family dynamics and the right words to say to patients and their loved ones at the end of life.
VITAS takes pride in its volunteers, and we welcome you to become part of our team. There are many locations throughout the Brevard County area you can choose from. Your commitment is completely up to you and your time is always appreciated. For more information visit www.VITAS.com.
