Honoring Life ~ Offering Hope

Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care is looking for a few good men and women who have a heart for veterans 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 vulnerable time. Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care is aware of the challenges our Veterans face. When diagnosed with a terminal illness, the multifaceted needs our Veterans require compassionate and focused end-of-life care. As a Veteran to Veteran Volunteer you have the unique ability to support other Veterans who are terminally ill. We also welcome family members and friends who have a heart for veterans and Veteran issues.

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 been seen replacing lost medals, supporting a Veterans recognition ceremony and so much more. Orientation and training are required and provided free of charge. The time commitment for volunteering is flexible and based on individual availability. Most correspondence can be done by phone, mail or email, eliminating the need to come to the offices on a regular basis. Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care serves most of Connecticut. That means that volunteers serve close to home or work.

You may also give us a call at 203-490-1155. Many patients and families are forever changed by their hospice volunteer. I would be honored to speak to about our Hospice organization. Sincerely, Karen Hale, Volunteer Services

Description

Giving Meaning to Every Minute

In every life situation we have a choice as to how we react. At no time is this more profound than in facing the end of life or the death of a loved one.

These months, days, weeks and moments can be among life's most precious - and that is precisely the reason that Seasons Hospice exists. We will do everything in our power to ease pain and provide physical and emotional comfort and support for our patients and their families and friends.

Support When You Need It Most

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.

We recognize that individuals and families are the experts in their own care, and we continuously strive for excellence beyond accepted standards.

We are born into a world of comfort, warmth and love, and it our belief that we should all leave this world in the same way. To further that goal, we work with communities to increase the awareness of hospice as part of the continuum of care.

Our Promise to You

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.

The second promise we make to our patients and families is that they will not feel alone.

Seasons Hospice engenders hope in the lives of its patients and their family members. We are here for you.
