Hospice patients can feel lonely. Sometimes family members and friends don't visit because they don't know what to say or don't want to interfere in this private time. Others don't visit because of their own fear of death and dying. Sometimes, it is travel distance and other obligations that keep family members and friends away. That's why volunteers are so important in the circle of care that Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care of Maryland provides to our patients. Do you have one hour a week to share with a hospice patient who lives near you? Our patients look forward to these friendly visits from our volunteers. They want to share their life lessons and life stories. All that is necessary to be a fantastic hospice volunteer is a warm smile, a comforting hand to hold, an ear to listen, a willingness to live in the moment and the time to make that human connection. No one should have to spend their final days alone. But some do. You can change that. Become a Seasons Hospice Volunteer.
