Veteran to Veteran Volunteers
Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care
Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care has volunteer services that are geared towards the special needs of our veterans. Seasons is seeking volunteers with a history of military service to help us provide a listening presence for our veteran patients.
We recognize that veterans have unique needs and may feel most comfortable connecting with a volunteer who is also a veteran. Providing a compassionate presence and listening ear can make a real difference, so join us and become an integral part of our Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care patient support team.

Volunteers set their own levels of commitment and travel based on their available time and the needs of our patients. Volunteers serve our adult patients of all ages who live within the metro Atlanta area.
Volunteer selection begins with an application and interview where potential volunteers may express their personal goals, availability, interests and talents.
Volunteers are carefully screened through a criminal background check, motor vehicle report, and personal references.
Direct Care Volunteers help by providing comfort, support, care and compassion to our patients and their family members, and are required to participate in initial hospice volunteer training as well as basic orientation. Indirect Care Volunteers help by providing administrative assistance on special projects that enhance the work of our staff and support patients, families and the efforts of the teams in the field.
