Season Hospice & Palliative Care
Honoring Life ~ Offering Hope

Reiki is a Japanese form of stress reduction and relaxation. It is based on the Asian concept of life energy and is done through laying on hands ( www.reiki.org). As a volunteer Reiki or Therapeutic Touch practitioner you will be asked to provide companionship, active listening, gentile Reiki or TT to patients and families navigating terminal illness. End-of-life TT and Reiki practitioner volunteers are a part of the Seasons Circle of Care who promote comfort, relaxation, help relieve anxiety and pain using meditation and energy medicine. As a TT touch or Reiki volunteer, it is important to remember that an openness to listen to our patients body, mind, soul, spirit is vital in supporting them and their families through a terminal illness.

Certification in Therapeutic Touch or Reiki Level 2 practitioner is required. Level 3 Reiki practitioner preferred. Must be able to provide a copy of your certification. Orientation as a Hospice volunteer will be provided free of charge. If you are interested in learning more about our Volunteer Department and how you might become a Reiki or TT volunteer please contact us through our Seasons website at www.seasons.org or contact our Volunteer Manager, Alexa Isenhart, directly at 203-490-1155 or aisenhart@seasons.org

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.
