VITAS Healthcare of Greater Cincinnati

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 32 people are interested

VITAS Healthcare (r) is looking for kind and caring people 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 ill loved ones. Relief care (sitting with a patient while the caregiver takes a break) is one of our biggest volunteer needs. 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 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. We are especially looking for volunteers who would be available during daytime, weekday hours but weekends or evenings are also helpful.
