VITAS Healthcare Volunteers Rock!

VITAS is looking for caring individuals to share their voice and time as Proactive Caller Volunteers to help terminally ill patients and their families. If you enjoy talking on the phone and have time to make check-in calls, you may be a perfect Proactive Caller Volunteer. Proactive Caller volunteers make "check-in" phone calls to our hospice patients and their family members.

The best part about this volunteer opportunity is you can make calls from your own home. This volunteer position involves asking how they are doing, checking on needed supplies, listening, and identifying any service concerns. Proactive Calls can also be made from our office in Maryland Heights.

VITAS Volunteer Orientation is provided free of charge to help you learn the skills required to be an outstanding hospice volunteer. This volunteer position would be to 1 to 2 hours a week and the days and times for volunteering are flexible according to your availability. VITAS appreciates any time you are able to contribute for volunteering. For more information, please contact Emily at (314)682-3434 or at Emily.Jokerst@vitas.com.
