If you have an hour or more per week to give, Ascend Hospice welcomes your gifts of time and compassion. Whether you choose to work directly with patients and families or to volunteer in one of many other ways, you can make a profound difference in someone's life, including your own. Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice team.

Volunteer Opportunities:
Companionship Volunteers work directly with patients providing companionship, offering friendly visits, reading to patients, writing letters, offering a gentle touch or sharing a quiet moment.

Complementary Volunteers are certified/trained professionals who can provide complementary modalities of reflexologly, music, Reiki, & massage.

Pet Therapy Volunteers provide companionship from our certified therapy dogs.

Administrative Volunteers provide help in our Cranford office by assisting with typing, addressing cards, organizing newsletters, creating packets, collating manuals and other varied clerical duties

Craft Volunteers consist of individuals or groups who touch patients in a special way by making lap blankets, shawls, memory bears and other articles for patients to enjoy.

Bereavement Volunteers offer support to the families of patients who have passed. During the grieving process the bereavement volunteer can be a valuable resource, especially for those who lack a solid support network. They often make phone calls to check up on family members and also send cards of comfort and care.
