About

Hospice is a program that focuses on quality of life for anyone in their last six months of life. Here at Seasons Hospice we offer patients comfort, dignity and hope as we support them through their final chapter on Earth. We have a team of nurses, chaplains, social workers, aides, music therapists and more to support individuals and families, BUT, WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! You can volunteer anywhere in the Phoenix region.

What part do volunteers play in hospice?
Of all the hours spent face to face with patients in any of our disciplines, 5% of those hours need to be on a volunteer basis. Hospice was started as a volunteer movement, and volunteers are an imperative part of hospice today. We couldn't keep our programs running without our volunteers!

What does volunteering at Seasons Hospice look like?
There are many ways to volunteer. The most common way is to be matched up with a patient in your area, and become their friend. We introduce you to the patient, make sure it's a good fit, and then you visit the patient once a week, or twice a month to give them that extra support. We often place volunteers with patients who are socially isolated.

What would I do with my assigned patient?

The list is endless:
- listen to their life story
- read aloud from a book they love
- do a puzzle or craft
- pen letters they dictate to people they want to say goodbye too
- take them for a walk
- sing or play a musical instrument

Our patients are comforted by our volunteers presence alone. It doesn't take much to impact their lives-- they are thrilled just knowing someone truly cares.

Who can volunteer?

Anyone! Please give us a call if you're interested, or send an email to Abby Schiavello. You can change a life!
