Use your compassion and talents to make a difference! Volunteer with hospice in Alameda and Contra Costa County, CA! Seasons strives to provide excellence in end of life care for patients and families. All of our volunteers are given careful training by a team of hospice professionals. This orientation happens either in-person or via an interactive online learning format at your convenience. Seasons has developed several specialty roles, which allow volunteers to utilize their own strengths and interests. This offers a more meaningful and rewarding volunteer experience, and enhances the quality of life for our patients and families. Have a special skill?
