Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: VITAS Healthcare of SouthWest Florida

  • 37 people are interested

VITAS healthcare offers this remote volunteer telephone calling opportunity from your home or campus apartment or room. We are in need of caring individuals to share their listening ear, voice and time as Pro Active/BTAP Caller volunteers to support hospice patients and their families. In this program, the Primary Caregiver receives "check-in" phone calls by trained Vitas Volunteers. These calls provide reassurance and ascertain needs are being met. BTAP callers provide outreach support to Patient Caregivers after their loved one has passed away. Callers receive training and are assigned and become an essential part of an Interdisciplinary team. Excellent opportunity for retirees looking to be engaged with others and retired nurses who seek to stay connected to patient and family experiences. Outstanding internship or community service opportunity for students in nursing, pre-med, pastoral/spiritual care, health administration, and social work programs.
