Mission Statement

Our Mission: Honoring Life Offering Hope

Our 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 volunteers both give and receive many benefits from joining our program.

Volunteers set their own levels of commitment and travel based on their available time and the needs of our patients. Volunteers serve our patients from newborns to those over 100 years in age and live within Orange County.

Volunteer selection begins with an application and interview where potential volunteers may express their personal goals, availability, interests and talents.

Volunteers are carefully screened through a criminal background check, motor vehicle report, and personal references.

Volunteers' skill sets are defined areas of service within the Volunteer Department. Skills sets have been developed to offer our volunteers opportunities for growth and to maintain high levels of competency. Skill sets may vary with service area location and may require additional training.

Direct Care Volunteers help by providing comfort, support, care and compassion to our patients and their family members, and are required to participate in initial hospice volunteer training as well as basic orientation. Training is offered in different formats and locations throughout the Seasons Hospice service areas. Specific skill sets may require additional interview, selection and program training.

Indirect Care Volunteers help by providing administrative assistance on special projects that enhance the work of our staff and support patients, families and the efforts of the teams in the field. Indirect Care Volunteers receive basic orientation, training specific to task undertaking, and are encouraged to attend initial hospice volunteer training.
Volunteer training and orientation give volunteers an opportunity to learn new skills and become aware of skills they already possess.

Some of the areas of training include: Role of the volunteer and the interdisciplinary team Hospice mission, history and philosophy of care Spiritual and cultural diversity Confidentiality Listening and communication skills Precautions Grief and bereavement Patient care Disease processes Self care

Additional support meetings and educational opportunities are offered throughout the year as well as ongoing personal support and social gatherings.

Our needs are great!! Contact Seasons Hospice for more details today!

Would you recommend Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care- Illinois?

Seasons is a great organization with the goal to provide patients with all the resources to live fully before they pass on. I signed up for training to become a volunteer at one of the inpatient facilities and am eagerly anticipating getting started with the program. The training is a bit intensive but it's definitely worth it and very much needed to give volunteers an accurate idea of what to expect.

In spring 2012, I began as an Indirect Patient Care Volunteer with Seasons. From day one, I have found the entire staff full of great appreciation for the work performed by their volunteers. Their "thank you's" are a constant. I look forward to each and every day that I spend at Seasons,and would highly recommend them to anyone seeking to get involved with volunteering.
