It's Your Calling...Check-in on Hospice Patients and Families

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: VITAS Healthcare of Chicagoland South - Tinley Park, Bradley, & Joliet

VITAS is looking for caring individuals to share their voice and time as Proactive Caller Volunteers to help terminally ill patients and their families.

If you enjoy talking on the phone and have time to make check-in calls, you may be a perfect ProActive Caller Volunteer.

Our Proactive volunteers make "check-in" phone calls to our hospice patients and their family members.

You can work from your dorm room, apartment, home, or the VITAS office. You’ll call patients at home, asking how they are doing, checking on needed supplies, listening, and identifying any service concerns.

VITAS provides free volunteer orientation to help you learn the skills required to be an outstanding volunteer caller. Volunteering can strengthen your resume for post-college job interviews and careers.
