ORGANIZATION: VITAS Healthcare of L.A. & Ventura County

VITAS Heathcare

VITAS is looking for kind and caring people to help terminally ill patients and their families in light housekeeping assistance. Volunteers can support patients and families by offering to do light dusting, vacuuming, making the bed, washing dishes, meal preparation, doing a load of laundry or grocery shopping.

These simple tasks can become difficult for a patient and family at the end of life. Providing assistance at a crucial time can make a real difference.

VITAS Volunteer orientation is provided free of charge to help you learn the skills required to be an outstanding hospice volunteer. Time and dates are ongoing and flexible.
