VITAS Healthcare is looking for volunteers who are able to share their time with hospice patients living at home, in the hospital, or in a long term care facility. 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.
Visits made by volunteers not only help each patient, but the families are truly touched as well. Even the shortest conversations can have the largest impact. VITAS volunteers provide relief care for caregivers, offer companionship for the patient, run errands and help in other meaningful ways.
This is a great opportunity to give back to your community!
VITAS Healthcare recognizes the importance of a strong and innovative program. Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice program, allowing VITAS to continue personalizing, enhancing and expanding services offered to patients and families. By exemplifying the VITAS Values, volunteers serve as patient and family advocates and are proactive in meeting the needs of patients and families. VITAS 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 the office, using their cars and from their own homes
