Making a profound difference in people's lives when they need it the most is what we do at Seasons Hospice. Join our team!
Seasons Hospice volunteers are an integral part of the hospice team. They have the opportunity to improve the quality of life for individuals who face a terminal illness and death.
Direct Patient Care Volunteers enrich the lives of patients by providing emotional support and companionship for the patient and their families. Volunteers can help in various ways through compassionate listening, reading, listening to music, helping patients make a legacy project, and more. Volunteers also help bring comfort to the family by being an understanding presence.
We serve patients residing in facilities and in their homes in the following counties: Cherokee, Cobb, DeKalb, Forsyth, North Fulton, Gwinnett and Hall.
Direct Patient Volunteers will need to complete Seasons Volunteer Training, have a valid driver's license, successfully pass a background check, and complete a 2 step TB Test. Background check and TB Test are paid for by Seasons.
