Make a Difference as a VITAS Volunteer

About

We are currently looking for Veteran Volunteers to visit hospice patients that are also veterans in their own homes, long term care facilities and nursing homes. There are many locations and opportunities available.

There are many ways VITAS Veteran Volunteers can help veterans; including but not limited to: driving and/or accompany a veteran to appointments, shopping and other events; help a veteran apply for benefits or learn about available assistance; help replace lost or stolen military medals by contacting appropriate agencies; listen to life stories or record or videotape a veteran’s reminiscences; telephone veterans to ask how they are doing; attend or help plan activities celebrating Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day; educate veteran’s groups about hospice services by speaking at their meetings.

In addition, volunteers are needed to visit veteran patients that reside at Missouri Veterans Home located at 10600 Lewis and Clark Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63136. Any time you are able to volunteer is greatly appreciated. For more information, please contact Emily Jokerst at (314) 682-3400 or at Emily.Jokerst@Vitas.com.
