Season Hospice & Palliative Care
Honoring Life ~ Offering Hope

Volunteers play a vital role in preserving each hospice patient's dignity while removing the fear associated with dying. Craft volunteers can support the hospice community by making items such as prayer shawls, afghans, pillow cases, pajamas, lap blankets, and scrap books. These tokens of love bring great joy and comfort to the patients and families who receive them.

In addition, our Memory Bear Program is a vital part of the care we provide to our grieving families. Using Simplicity pattern 5461- our Seamstresses create beautiful Memory Bears for our patients loved ones. New craft ideas are always welcomed and creativity is a plus.

If you are interested in learning more about this volunteer opportunity please contact our Manager of Volunteer Services, Alexa Isenhart at 203-490-1155 or email at aisenhart@seasons.org. We look forward to hearing from you!

Mission Statement

Our Mission: Honoring Life ~ Offering Hope ~ Our Vision is to: recognize that individuals and families are the true experts in their own care; support our staff so they can put our patients and families first; find creative solutions which add quality to life; strive for excellence beyond accepted standards; increase the community’s awareness of hospice as part of the continuum of care.

Description

Seasons Hospice is a community-based organization with an ongoing mission to find creative solutions that add quality to end-of-life care. The caregivers at Seasons Hospice hold steadfast to the patient/family focus of hospice care.

People facing a terminal condition often express the same concerns. They worry about pain and fear abandonment. To ease these universal apprehensions, Seasons Hospice makes two promises to our patients and their families.

  • We promise to enhance the quality of time by ensuring that neither pain nor declining symptoms will diminish the character of a patient’s remaining days, weeks or months.
  • We promise our patients and families that they will not feel alone.
