About

Ascend Hospice is looking for individuals who are willing to share some of their time in bringing a little joy to others who are now at the end of their lives.

All of us have gifts to share. Whether it be offering companionship by conversation, holding someone's hand, playing music, reading to them or just making they feel special.

We ask you to share an hour a week, more if you are able to provide comfort and caring to those who will provide you with much more than you will ever imagine.

Companions may read, reminisce with patients , play music (instrumental) if skilled, just be present with someone and connect with them. Companions can massage hands to provide human contact and relaxation.
