Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care needs friendly volunteers for our Inpatient Unit in Cumming, Georgia.
We need your help in greeting families as they visit our Inpatient Unit, answering in-coming phone calls, and assisting our Nurses with administrative duties. Volunteers are integral members of the Inpatient Unit Team in providing compassionate end of life care to patients and their families.
Our busiest times are 10am to 2pm and then again in the evening from 5pm to 8pm; however, times to volunteer are flexible and based on your availability.
You must be 18 years of age or older to apply for this volunteer opportunity, be able to pass a background check, and allow us to complete a TB test on you. The main criteria to volunteering with us is being friendly!
Training consists of 3 Training Modules which can be completed at your home and then a 1-2 hour training at the Unit introducing you to procedures at our Unit.
