VITAS Healthcare is a provider of hospice services and we are 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.
Patient care volunteer activities include: relief care (sitting with a patient while the caregiver takes a break); friendly visits to patients and their families at home or in a nursing home; help with light housekeeping;run errands to the grocery store, drug store, post office; assist with programs and special events.
No clinical experience is needed. Volunteers do not perform clinical care but instead provide companionship and comfort to patients and families.
