Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
VITAS Healthcare recognizes the importance of a strong and innovative program. Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice program, allowing VITAS to continue personalizing, enhancing and expanding services offered to patients and families. By exemplifying the VITAS Values, volunteers serve as patient and family advo cat es and are proactive in meeting the needs of patients and families. VITAS integrates volunteers into the hospice team by actively recruiting, training, supporting and creatively utilizing volunteers to meet patient and family needs. Volunteers and their contributions are respected and valued.
VITAS Healthcare Volunteers are a "work of heart" providing friendly, non-medical patient and family care. However, both Adminstrative and Patient Care Volunteers are oriented to Chicagoland Central office and Patient Care Volunteers are oriented to our in-patient unit (IPU), home visits, and nursing homes. Can you sew memory bears? Do you speak multiple languages? play an instrument or have great administrative skills? Do you want to learn hospice and the benefit of developing as a humanitarian? I would love to work with individuals or groups. Thank you in advance for your interest in helping us serve "patients and families."
