About

VITAS Healthcare is looking for kind and caring people to help hospice 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 ill loved ones. Relief care (sitting with a patient while the caregiver takes a break) is one of our biggest volunteer needs. This is also an opportunity to socialize with the patient for a short time. We are looking for a Patient Care Volunteer for a home patient the Maryland Heights area (63043).

For caregivers to have the opportunity to run an errand, go see a movie, go to a doctor’s appointment or go on an outing can work wonders to renew their energy and better equip them for the responsibilities of caregiving. Anytime you are able to dedicate as a volunteer is greatly appreciated. For more information, please contact Emily Jokerst at (314) 682-3434 or at Emily.Jokerst@Vitas.com.
