About

Hospice volunteering is an incredibly rewarding experience. Are you a compassionate person with time and skills to offer? Whatever your specialty or passion, there is a place for you as a volunteer with Seasons Hospice. You can increase the quality of life of patients and families who are affected by a terminal illness. You can volunteer all over San Bernardino County, at our Rancho Cucamonga or Victorville offices, or from your home! We are currently training: Direct Patient Care Volunteers-- visit patients to offer companionship, support, and caregiver relief for patients all over San Bernardino County! Office Volunteers-- join us in our friendly Rancho Cucamonga or Victorville offices to assist with administrative work, Monday through Friday. Hours are flexible! Vigil Volunteers-- offer your comfort and presence to the patient and family during the last hours of life. Bereavement Phone Call Volunteers-- we keep in touch with the family at specific intervals after their loved one has died. Make the phone calls that offer comfort and support. Namaste-- a specialized program for our dementia patients that uses light touch and sensory stimulation. Music Companion and Spiritual Companion Volunteers-- do you have a musical talent or a skill for offering spiritual comfort to people? You can share that with patients and families. Circle of Care Volunteers-- volunteer for 2 hours a week, on Thursday evenings, by making phone calls to a group of patients to "tuck them in" for the weekend and assuring they have the supplies, medications, and support they need! Respite Volunteers-- offer a break to a caregiver by making one-time, 3-4 hour long visits to patients while the caregiver takes some time for themselves.
