VITAS Healthcare Memory Bear Crafters 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.

A Memory Bear may recall the closeness of a loved one, bring a smile to someone in distress, or offer a sense of security to a child who feels alone after the loss of a grandparent, parent, or sibling.

The fabric is provided by the family. The pattern, stuffing, ribbon, buttons and support are provided by VITAS Healthcare. Creativity is provided by the Memory Bear volunteers.

This is an opportunity to use your talents or hobbies to make a difference in someone's life and work with a group that meets in Palm Bay, Florida. No professional experience necessary. If you cannot sew by hand or machine, you can cut the pattern, stuff the bears and attach the ribbon.

Mission Statement

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.

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.
