About

Our 11th Hour volunteers freely offer their gifts of time and companionship to patients and families experiencing the final hours.

11th Hour volunteers are often the most experienced of all hospice volunteers. They can just be present with the patient, talk to them, reassuring them or holding their hand. These volunteers learn through experience the need for companionship either for the patient or the family or both during their final journey here on earth.

Volunteers for the 11th Hour program receive extensive special training. If you are interested in being an 11th Hour volunteer, please contact Krystal Anderson (Volunteer Coordinator) at 913-287-5678 or via email at krystal.anderson@ascendhealth.com.

All Ascend Hospice volunteers receive extensive training, free of charge. Our training covers the history of hospice care, family dynamics, HIPAA, boundaries, hand washing, infection control, blood-borne pathogens, safety precautions, pain management, aromatherapy, and the final stages of dying and death. In-services are provided quarterly, in addition to a program designed to help volunteers deal with stress and self-care management.
