Offer a Tranquil Experience, Through Reiki, to Hospice Patients
VITAS Healthcare of New Jersey Shore
Reiki Volunteers comfort VITAS patients at the end of life-and their families-with relaxing and pain-reducing therapeutic touch.
A dying patient’s sense of isolation from the world around him or her is often made worse by the lack of comforting human touch. Reiki Volunteers provide compassionate touch, relaxation, sense of well-being, emotional health and a state of balance. Not to mention, volunteering your professional services to a VITAS patient makes a difference in patient’s life.
All VITAS Volunteers receive free orientation in end-of-life care. Our Reiki Volunteers must have at least a Level 1 Reiki certificate.
