Seasons Hospice is looking for Volunteers to visit patients in San Jose.
As a Seasons Hospice Volunteer, you'll help patients and family members by offering emotional support and companionship. Volunteer activities with patients include: Reading out loud, listening to music, writing letters, doing crafts, asking patients to tell their life stories, but most of all, becoming a friend with someone dealing with a terminal illness. You will work directly with our medical team, our social workers, and music therapists to ensure that the patient receives optimal care. Seasons Hospice will provide training, and opportunities for volunteers to attend weekly medical meetings.
If you are looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity, then this is for you!
