ORGANIZATION: VITAS Healthcare of SF Bay Area

  • 1 person is interested

VITAS is looking for kind and caring volunteers to help terminally ill patients and their families. When you make friendly visits, run simple errands, provide a listening ear, and offer the gift of friendship at a crucial time, you can make a real difference in another's life.

VITAS volunteers provide relief care for caregivers, offer companionship for the patient, run errands, have conversations, play games, music, and help in other meaningful ways.

This is a great opportunity for you to give back to the community. By taking a small amount of time out of your busy week, you can make the biggest difference in another’s life.

VITAS takes pride in its volunteers, and we welcome you to become part of our team. There are many locations throughout the area you can choose from.

Take advantage of numerous volunteer opportunities, including:

  • Reading to the patient
  • Playing music, singing, instruments, games, arts/crafts
  • Sitting with a patient while the caregiver takes a break
  • Making friendly visits to patients and their families at home or in a nursing home
  • Running errands to the grocery store, drug store, or post office

VITAS provides free training and orientation for volunteers to help learn the skills required to be an outstanding hospice volunteer.
