VITAS Healthcare Volunteers Rock!

Volunteers are critically important for visiting patients at the end of life that do not have family or friends that regularly visit. VITAS Healthcare is looking for volunteers to visit patients on hospice residing in nursing homes as well as their own homes located in the Maryland Heights, MO area. This includes Parkwood Skilled Nursing and Rehab located at 3201 Parkwood Lane, Maryland Heights, MO 63043. Patient Care Volunteers offer companionship, play music and games, read to patients and help in other meaningful ways.

Volunteers visit VITAS patients to provide specific, non- medical care through socialization and friendly visits. VITAS Healthcare provides comprehensive training and orientation for hospice volunteering on communication skills, family dynamics and how to make a positive difference for patients and their caregivers. This includes a Zoom General Orientation training on the ways hospice volunteers assist patients and families. The days and times for volunteering are flexible according to your availability. Any time you are able to contribute is greatly appreciated. For more information, please contact Emily at (314)682-3434 or at Emily.Jokerst@vitas.com For more information about VITAS Volunteer Services, visit https://vitas.com/volunteer.
