Volunteer to Make a Difference in the Lives of Others and Get Credit for Community Service Hours

VITAS Healthcare(r) is looking for volunteers who are able to share their time with hospice patients living at home, in the hospital or in long term care facilities. Hospice volunteers give their time to terminally ill patients and their caregivers during a critical time. In orientation classes they are trained in listening skills, family dynamics and the right words to say to patients and their loved ones at the end of life.

Visits made by our volunteers not only help each patient, but the families are truly touched as well. The shortest conversation can have the largest impact.

VITAS volunteers:

  • Visit patients to talk, read to them, or just listen
  • Play a musical instrument or sing to patients
  • Bring a pet as a PawPals SM Volunteer in nursing homes and assisted living facilities
  • Work as administrative volunteers in the office
  • Grant wishes


Assignments and schedules are made according to the volunteer’s preferences. Students can volunteer with friends and, most importantly, get credit for the community service hours they need to graduate.

Make a difference. Volunteer today. For more information about VITAS visit VITAS.com or contact Volunteer Services Manager at (321 752-2553 or Jennifer.cooke@vitas.com.

We look forward to hearing from you!
