Volunteers Needed For South Florida Hospice Patients

VITAS Healthcare, the nation’s leading provider of end-of-life care, welcomes individuals interested in sharing their time and talents through volunteer opportunities in hospice. Because hospice patients have unique end-of-life needs, VITAS seeks volunteers from all backgrounds, experiences and cultures.

VITAS volunteers are part of a multidisciplinary team of caregivers that include a doctor, nurse, aide, chaplain and social worker. All volunteers have the opportunity to choose a role in which they feel comfortable and fulfilled including activities such as patient care, pet visits, music and art enrichment, administrative assistance, sewing, quilting and more.
Volunteers receive free and comprehensive training before being assigned, a job where they learn hospice philosophy, caring for the terminally ill and grief and loss education, and more.
Hospice volunteers make a difference for people at the end of their life journey, filling the gap between loved ones and professional caregivers.
