38 people are interested
VITAS Healthcare is looking for volunteers who are able to share their time with hospice patients living at home and in nursing home facilities. Hospice volunteers give their time to terminally ill patients and their caregivers during a critical time.
VITAS volunteers provide relief care to tired caregivers, offer companionship to hospice patients, run errands, and help in many other meaningful ways. This is a great opportunity to give back to your community. A small time investment can make a huge impact!
No clinical experience is needed or necessary- volunteers will be trained in listening skills, family dynamics and the right words to say to patients and their loved ones dealing with end of life issues.
