Opportunity Description: Hospice volunteers visiting nursing home patients lessen the burden on family members who may be too far away to play an active role in their loved one’s life.
With hospice training, you will find that your skill sets are sharpened and new ones emerge. Hospice volunteers are trained in communication skills, family dynamics and how to make a positive difference for patients and their caregivers. After you complete the required orientation, VITAS-trained volunteers are prepared to visit nursing homes and assisted living facilities to provide relief care for: caregivers, offer companionship and pampering to the patient, sit vigil, provide love with Paw Pals visits, and help in other meaningful ways.

VITAS Healthcare recognizes the importance of a strong and innovative program. Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice program, allowing VITAS Healthcare to continue personalizing, enhancing and expanding services offered to patients and families. By exemplifying the VITAS Healthcare Values, volunteers serve as patient and family advocates and are proactive in meeting the needs of patients and families. VITAS Healthcare integrates volunteers into the hospice team by actively recruiting, training, supporting and creatively utilizing volunteers to meet patient and family needs. Volunteers and their contributions are respected and valued.
Volunteers are the heart of VITAS Healthcare, providing friendly, non-medical patient and family care and offering support services in our office. VITAS Healthcare is looking for volunteers who are able to share their time with hospice patients living at home, nursing homes or ALF. 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.
VITAS takes pride in its volunteers, and we welcome you to become part of our team. There are many locations throughout the Brevard County area you can choose from. Your commitment is completely up to you and your time is always appreciated. For more information visit www.VITAS.com.
