Mission Statement

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.

Description

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."

VITAS IS A GREAT PLACE TO WORK AT OR EVEN VOLUNTEER IF YOU HAVE THE EXTRA TIME, COMPASSION, AND HEART TO HELP OTHERS WHO CAN NOT HELP THEMSELVES. THE ATMOSPHERE IS EXCELLENT, THE PEOPLE TREAT YOU LIKE FAMILY AND THEY ARE ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP YOU JUST LIKE YOU ARE WILLING TO HELP THEM. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS ESTABLISHMENT TO ANYONE WHO HAS A COMPASSIONATE HEART ABOUT HELPING OTHERS... VITAS IS THE PLACE TO WORK AT BECAUSE I WORK AND VOLUNTEER MY TIME THERE FIRST HAND!!!!!!
