Choirs and Musical Groups are NEEDED for Seasons Inpatient Unit in Cumming!
Research has shown that music has a profound effect on our well-being. Hospice patients are no exception. At Seasons, we make a difference every day to patients and families coping with terminal illness while creating a center of excellence in hospice care. As a music companion volunteer you will partner with our music therapist or other support care team member to provide music that brings enjoyment, perhaps a positive well-being and much life enrichment.
Hospice volunteers experience a great deal of satisfaction from their service and with the patients they visit. We do hope that new volunteers will make a commitment and dedicate 3-4 hours per month to volunteering. Direct Care volunteers volunteer in their town or surrounding towns and we always work around personal or professional schedules.
Many patients and families are forever changed by their hospice volunteer. Comprehensive hospice training and orientation is provided, free of charge, as well as ongoing support and hospice education opportunities. Should you have any questions, or need further information, please contact Sabrina Samuel, Volunteer Manager at 404-250-4950 or visit www.seasons.org.

Hospice volunteers both give and receive many benefits from joining our program.
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. Indirect Care Volunteers receive basic orientation, training specific to task undertaking, and are encouraged to attend initial hospice volunteer training.
Additional support meetings and educational opportunities are offered throughout the year as well as ongoing personal support and social gatherings.
