VITAS Volunteers give their time to terminally ill patients and their families in a hospital type setting. Volunteers are needed to: visit with patients and families in the In patient unit, read books out loud to patients or visiting children, write letters or play games with patients and/or families, provide friendly support with your certified pet, sing or play music for patients and their families, manage the patient care activity cart and help with administrative duties, like answering phones and welcoming in people.

The VITAS IPU is open 24 hours, 7 days a week. Volunteers generally help by providing support during a 2 to 4-hour shift. However, you make your own schedule.

Mission Statement

VITAS Healthcare recognizes the importance of a strong and innovative program. Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice program, allowing VITAS Healthcare to continue personalizing, enhancing and expanding services offered to patients and families. By exemplifying the VITAS Healthcare Values, volunteers serve as patient and family advocates and are proactive in meeting the needs of patients and families. VITAS Healthcare integrates volunteers into the hospice team by actively recruiting, training, supporting and creatively utilizing volunteers to meet patient and family needs.

Description

Volunteers are the heart of VITAS Healthcare, providing friendly, non-medical patient and family care and offering support services in our office. VITAS Healthcare is looking for volunteers who are able to share their time with hospice patients living at home, nursing homes or ALF. Hospice volunteers give their time to terminally ill patients and their caregivers during a critical time. In orientation classes they are trained in listening skills, family dynamics and the right words to say to patients and their loved ones at the end of life.

VITAS takes pride in its volunteers, and we welcome you to become part of our team. There are many locations throughout the Brevard County area you can choose from. Your commitment is completely up to you and your time is always appreciated. For more information visit www.VITAS.com.
