About

VITAS is 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!

VITAS volunteer activities include: friendly visits with patients at home or in a nursing home; relief care (sit with a patient while the caregiver takes a break); reading a book, playing a game or watching a movie with a patient, accompanying a patient on an outing; running errands for patients; assisting with programs and special events.
