Our team at Seasons Hospice is looking for compassionate folks to join our Namaste Volunteer program. Namaste Care uses person-centered approaches to improve quality of life through meaningful sensory activities that stimulate the senses, promote relaxation, and offer comfort and serenity to those living with dementia. Although specifically designed for people with advanced dementia, the sensory approaches used in Namaste Care enhance the lives of infants, children and people with other diseases as well as providing moments of peace and tranquility to family caregivers.
Seasons Hospice will provide all necessary materials such as creams and aromatherapy oils. We provide a mandatory comprehensive training which would require around fifteen hours to complete. Most of this can be done at your own time and convenience. Please reach out to us if this opportunity resonates.
