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.

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.
