VITAS Healthcare(r) is looking for avid booklovers to read to hospice patients in their homes, the hospital or long term care facilities.

Many hospice patients are unable to read on their own. Volunteer readers offer hospice patients the ability to stay in touch with the world around them, or the opportunity to escape into the world of a favorite novel for a short time. By taking a small amount of time out of your busy work or school week you can make the biggest difference in another’s life.

This is a great opportunity for you to give back to the community. Your commitment is completely up to you, whether you spend one day a week or one day a month. Your time is always appreciated.

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.
