3 people are interested
VITAS is looking for kind and caring people to help terminally ill patients and their families. Friendly visits, simple errands, providing a listening ear, and the gift of friendship at a crucial time can make a real difference in another's life. Yours, too!
Other VITAS volunteer activities include: relief care (sit with a patient while the caregiver takes a break); friendly visits to patients and their families at home or in a nursing home; driving a patient to appointments; accompanying a patient to a church function, wedding, beauty shop, play, ballgame; run errands to the grocery store, drug store, post office; assist with programs and special events. VITAS volunteers also have the option to assist with telephone assurance to patients, their caregivers or to bereaved survivors and hospital visitation at our Inpatient Unit. Volunteers are assigned based on their location preference, so we can keep you in your neighborhood or community if needed.
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. Have you missed a recent class or the class was not in your area? Not a problem!! We set meetings for one on one orientation sessions throughout every week.
