"Music can lift us out of depression or move us to tears ~ it is a remedy, a tonic, orange juice for the ear. But for many of my neurological patients, music is even more ~ it can provide access, even when no medication can, to movement, to speech, to life. For them music is not a luxury, but a necessity.
As a trained Direct Patient Care Volunteer you have an opportunity to join our Music Companion Volunteer program.
Music Companions will complete the Volunteer Training program.
You will receive our Music Companion Orientation which includes education about Music therapy and its benefits to our hospice patients.
Our Music Companion Volunteers are a true partnership in care which we are confident will bring many hours of joy to patients, family members, staff, and community members served through Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care. We look forward to working with each volunteer who chooses to share this special gift of hospice volunteer service.

SEASONS HOSPICE's vision is to: Recognize that individuals and families are the true experts in their own care - Support our staff so they can put our patients and families first - Find creative solutions which add quality to life - Strive for excellence beyond accepted standards - Increase the community's awareness of hospice as part of the continuum of care
Hospice is a vision of caring that gives patients with terminal illness choices about how they spend the last days of their lives. Volunteers fill a unique roll in supporting the patient and family as they are the one member of the team whose role is to simply be there for them-- no poking or prodding, no giving medicines or taking temperatures-- the volunteer is there to provide a comforting presence and practical support.
