Honoring Life ~ Offering Hope

Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care is looking for volunteers who have a heart for Veteran issues and end of life care. As a member of the We Honor Veterans Program through the NHPCO (National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization) and a part of the Hospice Veteran Partnership in Connecticut, Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care is proud to Honor and Serve our Veterans in Connecticut at such a sacred time. Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care is aware of the challenges our Veterans face and as a Veteran to Veteran Volunteer, you embody the unique ability to support other Veterans who are terminally ill. We also welcome family members and friends who have a heart for Veterans.

We are looking for volunteers who are willing to serve by sharing their time to help our Veterans during their final battle.

Seasons Hospice Volunteers provide companionship, emotional and spiritual support, and often reminisce with our Veterans from WWII, the Korean War Conflict, Vietnam, Dessert Shield and Desert Storm and others. Our volunteer can be seen replacing lost medals, supporting a Veterans Recognition Ceremony, and so much more. Orientation and training are required and is provided free of charge. The time commitment for volunteering is flexible and based on the individual's availability.

About Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care

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.
