The Power of Music Therapy

March 4, 2022

When COVID-19 rolled in to Western North Carolina, questions about how best to care for our community took on a different tone. Hospice families welcome us not only into their homes, but also into emotionally and medically difficult times in their lives. I will never again take for granted the true intimacy that comes with sharing space
with patients and families in person.

20 Years Since 9/11

It started to snow. While this might sound inconsequential, it happened to be August and I happened to be standing in the middle of an ocean. While I am a Chaplain, I do not claim to be able to walk on water, unless of course it is frozen. I was, actually, standing on ice at the North Pole.

Finding My Life's Passion- Brenda Shearer

Posted by Four Seasons on Sep 1, 2021 1:35:51 PM

July 2020

“Ms. Brenda,” as she’s known around the Foundation, is the definition of love and kindness. Born in Wisconsin, Brenda Shearer’s background is nothing short of impressive. She holds a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction in Reading Language Arts, has co-authored four graduate level textbooks, and was a tenured professor at University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh.
But these are not the things that define Brenda. As she puts it, “I left ‘Dr. Shearer’ at the university when I retired.” Volunteering at the Four Seasons Foundation is now her greatest joy and passion in life.

Kena Shaw: Volunteering Here is Special

Posted by Four Seasons on Sep 1, 2021 1:30:16 PM

April 28, 2021

I first learned about Four Seasons through my student advisor, Vanessa Capps. Four Seasons was a volunteering option available to me to complete my hours for the Work-Based Learning Program at Blue Ridge Community College. Before learning of this opportunity, I was only vaguely aware of the many ways you could volunteer for this non-profit organization. Since I began volunteering in January 2021, I have been able to work with several departments to complete tasks and use my new knowledge from college to help assist others. I have made birthday and thinking-of-you cards for patients to help brighten their day, as well as put together face shields for the clinicians who care for patients and their loved ones in Four Seasons facilities. I quickly learned that there are many opportunities I did not know existed, from knitting face masks to filing records in the office, and many more.

Patty Vega Home Store Volunteer Spotlight

Posted by Four Seasons on Sep 1, 2021 1:28:15 PM

July 2019

Patty came to volunteer at Four Seasons after her husband was cared for at Elizabeth House in 2015. He fought a long battle with cancer and, as she recounts, “The services he received
and the assistance I was given allowed me to be strong for him and make his last days comfortable in a loving and safe environment. “After this experience,” continues Patty, “I knew I had to do my best to assist Four Seasons in continuing this delivery of service to all those who were in need. So, I went to the volunteer training classes at Four Seasons and decided to help out at the Hospice Home Store.”
