VITAS wants to enlist your services to care for terminally ill veterans living at home, in nursing homes and in assisted living communities. VITAS Veteran Volunteers may or may not be U. S. military veterans themselves.
Our Veteran Volunteers visit terminally ill veterans; drive and/or accompany a veteran to appointments, shopping and other events; help a veteran apply for benefits or learn about available assistance; listen to life stories or record a veteran's reminiscences; telephone veterans to ask how they are doing; attend or help plan activities celebrating Memorial Day and Veteran's Day; educate veteran's groups about hospice services by speaking at their meetings.
Volunteer orientation teaches the skills required to be a hospice volunteer. Time and dates are ongoing and flexible. Orientation and training to be a VITAS Veteran Volunteer is free.
Show a veteran that he or she is not forgotten.
