Some of our patients are spending the final weeks, days, and hours of their life alone, without family and friends nearby. Although they become part of the Seasons Hospice family, these individuals would benefit from your companionship and supportive presence at the end of their life. Vigil Volunteers are trained to support patients in their final hours by holding their hand, providing reassurance, placing a cool washcloth on their forehead, creating a peaceful environment through music and aromatherapy, and offering support throughout their transition.
You will receive full hospice volunteer training and specialized Vigil Volunteer training. All volunteers with Seasons Hospice must complete a background check, paid for by Seasons.
If this sounds like a meaningful opportunity to you, please contact us for more information.

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.
