Hospice volunteering is an incredibly rewarding experience. Are you a compassionate person with time and skills to offer? Whatever your specialty or passion, there is a place for you as a volunteer with Seasons Hospice. You can increase the quality of life of patients and families who are affected by a terminal illness. You can volunteer all over Tampa, at our Hillsborough office, or from your home!

We are currently training:

  • Direct Patient Care Volunteers-- visit patients to offer companionship, support, and caregiver relief for patients all over Hillsborough County!
  • Office Volunteers-- join us in our friendly Tampa office to assist with administrative work, Monday through Friday. Hours are flexible!
  • Vigil Volunteers-- offer your comfort and presence to the patient and family during the last hours of life.
  • Bereavement Phone Call Volunteers-- we keep in touch with the family at specific intervals after their loved one has died. Make the phone calls that offer comfort and support.
  • Namaste-- a specialized program for our dementia patients that uses light touch and sensory stimulation.
  • Music Companion and Spiritual Companion Volunteers-- do you have a musical talent or a skill for offering spiritual comfort to people? You can share that with patients and families.
  • Circle of Care Volunteers-- volunteer for 2 hours a week, on Thursday mornings, by making phone calls to a group of patients to "tuck them in" for the weekend and ensuring they have the supplies, medications, and support they need! Calls can be made from our office or your own home.
  • Respite Volunteers-- offer a much-needed break to a family caregiver by making one-time, 2-4 hour long visits to patients while the caregiver takes some time for themselves.
