ORGANIZATION: VITAS Healthcare of New Jersey West
Please visit the new page to apply.
Hospice volunteers visiting nursing home patients lessen the burden on family members who may be too far away to play an active role in their loved one’s life.
With hospice training, you will find that your skill sets are sharpened and new ones emerge. Hospice volunteers are trained in communication skills, family dynamics and how to make a positive difference for patients and their caregivers. After you complete the required orientation, VITAS-trained volunteers are prepared to visit nursing homes and assisted living facilities to provide relief care for: caregivers, offer companionship and pampering to the patient, sit vigil, provide love with Paw Pals visits, and help in other meaningful ways.For more information about VITAS Volunteer Services visit https://www.vitas.com/volunteer
