Guided Imagery Volunteer

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: VITAS Healthcare

  • 1 person is interested

Holistic and complementary therapies like guided imagery help hospice patients and their families embrace quality of life. VITAS(r) Healthcare is looking for compassionate Guided Imagery volunteers to create calm, peace, and body-mind harmony for patients by combining guided images and relaxing soft background music.

Guided Imagery volunteers not only create an environment to reduce stress, anxiety, and restlessness, but also assist in relief of tension and emotional exhaustion. It’s meaningful work that we could not do without our volunteers.

VITAS Guided Imagery volunteers must have a certificate of completion in Guided Imagery. We provide free volunteer orientation to help you learn about hospice and the patient visit. Volunteering is fulfilling and can also strengthen your resume for post-college job interviews and careers.

Are you passionate about and experienced in guided imagery? Share your skills and this meaningful relaxation method with hospice patients and their families.

About VITAS Healthcare

Location:

3131 Eastside St., Suite 200, Houston, TX 77098, US

Mission Statement

We are a growing family of hospices providing the highest quality human services, products and case management to terminally ill and other appropriate patients and their families with measurable advantages for the patient, the family, the medical community, the employee and the stockholder VITAS Vision - For over 30 years, VITAS has advocated for the rights of terminally ill patients and their families. We believe that patients should be apprised of their clinical prognosis and be involved in the decision-making process that determines how their end-of-life care is provided.

Description

The hospice care team is a group of specially trained healthcare professionals who ensure that a hospice patient’s last few months, weeks or days are lived in comfort and dignity. The members of this interdisciplinary team include a physician, nurse, hospice aide, social worker, chaplain, volunteer and bereavement specialist. Hospice team members make sure that patients under their care are comfortable, free from pain and able to maintain the highest possible quality of life. They visit the patient wherever the patient calls home-a private residence, assisted living community or nursing home.
Volunteers fill the gap between loved ones and professional caregivers. Hospice volunteers are trained to meet the needs of patients and families. They visit on a schedule, yet are open to change as dictated by the patient's health and interests. They are unpaid, yet priceless. Because hospice patients have unique end-of-life needs, VITAS seeks volunteers from all backgrounds, experiences and cultures. We’re particularly interested in volunteers who understand the hospice philosophy and who embrace the importance of quality of life at the end of life.

Volunteers are the heart of VITAS Healthcare(r), providing friendly, non-medical support to hospice patients and their family or offering support services in the office. We are seeking caring and compassionate individuals to volunteer for our patients in their homes or in nursing facilities in your community throughout the Houston and surrounding areas.
