ORGANIZATION: VITAS Healthcare of SF Bay Area

  • 264 people are interested

VITAS Healthcare is looking for volunteers who are able to share their time with hospice patients living at home, assisted living, or in long term care facilities. Hospice volunteers give their time to terminally ill patients and their caregivers during a critical time. Hours are flexible. Average commitment is about 1 hour a week. Training is provided. SPANISH SPEAKING VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED ALSO.

Visits made by our volunteers not only help each patient, but the families are truly touched as well. VITAS volunteers provide relief care for caregivers, offer companionship for the patient, read, play music and help in other meaningful ways.

This is a great opportunity for you to give back to the community. By taking a small amount of time out of your busy week you can make the biggest difference in another’s life.

VITAS takes pride in its volunteers, and we welcome you to become part of our team. There are many locations throughout the area you can choose from. For more information about VITAS Volunteer Services visit https://www.vitas.com/volunteer.
