Got Time?

VITAS Healthcare is looking for volunteers who are able to share their time with hospice patients living at home or in nursing care facilities.
Hospice volunteers give their time to terminally ill patients and their caregivers during a critical time.

VITAS volunteers provide relief care to caregivers, offer companionship for patients, run errands and help in many other meaningful ways. This is a great opportunity for you to give back to your own community. Even a small amount of time spend can make a big impact!

Volunteers do not need any clinical background or training...in orientation, volunteers are trained in listening skills, family dynamics and the right words to say to patients and their loved ones dealing with end of life issues.
