Cosmetology
Licensed Cosmetologists provide haircut/styles to hospice patients and families who can't get to a salon.

VITAS is looking for kind and caring licensed professional beauticians/barbers to pamper hospice patients living at home, long term care and assisted living facilities throughout San Diego. Pampering can include: gentle shampoo, cut, set and style; filing, polishing or buffing nails, helping with makeup. We are unable to provide coloring or perms due to our regulations. Help us improve the self image of our patients in their final days when they are unable to get to a salon. You may also provide these services to their caregiver who are unable to leave their loved one alone to go to a salon. A copy of your license must be kept on file.

All volunteers must attend a comprehensive orientation to gain the knowledge you will need to work with terminally ill patients. These are currently held online via Zoom and/or via self-study.

In order to comply with the State of California’s COVID requirements, all volunteers must have one of the two items below.

  1. Be fully vaccinated with booster (proof required) with no testing requirements
  2. Apply for a VITAS vaccine exemption (reviewed on a case-by-case basis) with proof of weekly negative tests required
