Become a Hospice Volunteer

It’s Rewarding & Fulfilling

Share your time and skills when it matters most... at the end of life.

VITAS Volunteers make a difference every day... helping those at the end of life and their families. The gift they give is their time as part of our hospice team effort.

VITAS is the largest and one of the nation’s oldest hospices, serving patients throughout Program Name since year. We provide a special form of care for people during the last months of life-focused on adding quality to this special time.

Volunteers are valued members of our hospice team, and help in a variety of ways:

  • Listening as a patient shares memories, feelings, fears
  • Filling in to give a family caregiver a short, needed break
  • Telephoning patients and families to offer reassurance and comfort
  • Providing administrative support in the VITAS office

VITAS volunteers are as diverse as the patients and families we serve-covering all ages, nationalities, faiths, and ethnic backgrounds. We even have volunteer roles for those who are homebound.


All VITAS volunteers receive comprehensive training. We, then, match your talents and interests with the broad spectrum of available volunteer roles.

Description

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.
