VITAS Healthcare of Delaware

  • 5 people are interested

Reiki Volunteers comfort VITAS patients at the end of life-and their families-with relaxing and pain-reducing therapeutic touch.

A dying patient’s sense of isolation from the world around him or her is often made worse by the lack of comforting human touch. Reiki Volunteers provide compassionate touch, relaxation, sense of well-being, emotional health and a state of balance. And volunteering your professional services to a VITAS patient makes you feel as good as your patient feels.

All VITAS Volunteers receive free orientation in end-of-life care. Our Reiki Volunteers must have at least a Level 1 Reiki certificate.
