VITAS Healthcare Volunteer Memory Bear Crafters needed to make sewn bears with compassion and love to ease a hurting heart after the death of a VITAS Healthcare patient. The bears are sewn from items of the patient's clothing provided by the family. VITAS Healthcare provides the pattern, stuffing, ribbon, buttons and support. Creativity is provided by the Memory Bear Volunteers.

This is an opportunity for VITAS Healthcare Volunteer Memory Bear Crafters to use their talents or hobbies to make a difference in someone's life.

No professional experience is needed. If you cannot sew by hand or by machine, you can help cut the pattern, help stuff bears and add ribbon and buttons.

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.
