VITAS Healthcare is looking for people who love to sew, knit or crochet who are able to share their skills with hospice patients living at home, nursing homes, assisted living facilities.

VITAS Healthcare knitters and crocheters can make lap robes, blankets, hats for patients to give them a bit of comfort and love in a difficult time.

A Memory Bear, sewn by a volunteer with compassion and love, is a forever friend who can ease a hurting heart after the death of a VITAS hospice patient. Sewn from a favorite pair of pants, a pullover top, dress, bathrobe or nightgown, a Memory Bear may recall the closeness of a loved one, bring a smile to someone in distress, or offer a sense of security to a child who feels alone after the loss of a parent or sibling.

There are so many different types if items (fidget aprons, quilts, bibs, memory bags, foley catheter bag covers, wheel chair bags, walker bags, etc.)that an amazing creative volunteer can make brining dignity, love and kindness to our hospice patients.

This is a great opportunity for you to give back to the community. By taking time out of your busy work week you can make the biggest difference in another's life in your own home, club house, church, etc.

VITAS Healthcare takes pride in its volunteers, and we welcome you to become part of our team. For more information about VITAS Volunteer Services visit https://www.vitas.com/volunteer
