VITAS Healthcare of Greater Dayton

  • 3 people are interested

VITAS wants to enlist your services to care for terminally ill veterans living at home, in nursing homes, and assisted living communities.

VITAS Veteran Volunteers may or may not be U.S.Military veterans themselves. They are trained to meet the specific needs of terminally ill veterans living in their own homes, nursing homes, and assisted living communities.

Our Veteran Volunteers visit terminally ill veterans; drive and/or accompany a veteran to appointments, shopping and other events; listen to life stories or record or videotape a veteran's reminiscences; telephone veterans to ask how they are doing; attend or help plan activities celebrating Memorial Day and Veteran's Day; educate veteran's groups about hospice services by speaking at their meetings.

Volunteer orientation teaches the skills required to be a hospice volunteer. VITAS Veteran Volunteers are further trained to meet specific end-of-life needs of veterans to improve their quality of life. Time and dates are ongoing and flexible. Orientation and training to be a VITAS Veteran Volunteer is free.
