Seasons Hospice, a nationwide hospice provider with offices in Hillsborough and Pinellas, has now expanding our services into Pasco County! Our new office is now open in Wesley Chapel but we are seeking volunteers for our patients throughout Pasco, especially in the New Port Richey area. Foreign language skills (especially Spanish) a plus.
Volunteers are an integral part of the Seasons Hospice team, providing compassion and care when it is needed most. The heart and hands of hospice, they provide a special kind of caring to patients, families, and staff through helping to make the hospice experience manageable and rewarding.
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 Pasco, at our Wesley Chapel office, or from your home!
We are currently training for the following direct care positions:
- 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.
- Vigil Volunteers-- offer your comfort and presence to the patient and family during the last hours of life.
- Namaste-- a specialized program for our dementia patients that uses light touch and sensory stimulation such as: aromatheraphy, applying lotion to hands or face.
- 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.
- Legacy Volunteers-- visit patients in homes and assisted living facilities all over Pasco County. Put your creative/artistic skills to use in assisting patients with a legacy project, or use your listening skills to offer companionship and support.
Other (indirect) volunteer opportunities include:
- Office Volunteers-- join us in our friendly Wesley Chapel office to assist with administrative work, Monday through Friday. Hours are flexible!
- 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.
