MSW students will gain valuable experience while providing terminally ill patients and their families with psychological and social support under the guidance of a VITAS Healthcare MSW field instructor and team manager. Students will serve as members of VITAS Healthcare interdisciplinary patient care teams while assisting patients and families in accessing community resources and governmental benefits and assessing patient and family needs and potential crisis situations. Students also will help patients and families identify grief issues and provide bereavement services.

VITAS Healthcare MSW student interns must be enrolled in a Master of Social Work program at an accredited college or university. All MSW student interns must attend new-employee orientation, which includes shadowing VITAS Healthcare care providers, during the first month of the internship.

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
