About

VITAS Healthcare is looking for volunteers to help terminally ill patients and their families- just by being there.

Many of our patients live at home with family members or friends who rarely get the opportunity to leave the house because they are devoted to caring for their loved one. Relief care (sitting with a patient while the caregiver takes a needed break) is one of our biggest volunteer needs. For caregivers to have the opportunity to run errands, go see a movie, go to a doctor appointment or simply go in the other room and take a nap can work wonders to renew energy and better equip for the responsibilities of care giving.

VITAS volunteer orientation is provided free of charge to help you learn the skills required to be an outstanding hospice volunteer!

Time and dates are ongoing and flexible.
