We are looking for kind and caring people to help terminally ill patients and their families.
Friendly visits, simple errands, providing a listening ear and the gift of friendship at a crucial time can make a real difference in another's life. Yours, too!
Other VITAS patient care volunteer activities: relief care (sit with a patient while the caregiver takes a break); friendly visits to patients and their families at home or in a nursing home; reading to the patient; playing music for the patient; driving a patient or family member to appointments (if comfortable); accompanying a patient to a church function, wedding, beauty shop, play, ballgame; run errands to the grocery store, drug store, post office; assist with programs and special events.
This is a non-clinical opportunity and no direct patient care would be permitted.
We'll work with your schedule.
