During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Ascend Hospice is offering volunteer opportunities for compassionate, empathetic individuals who want to enhance their lives by giving their time to others in their community. Music is such an important part of people’s lives and can be a wonderful way to provide comfort. We are seeking guitarists, harpists, or any portable instrument players to provide music to our clients at their bedside. Volunteers receive training, and time commitment ranges from one to two hours per week. Your schedule is up to you to arrange, giving you complete flexibility. We do ask for a commitment of one year of service.
We look forward to welcoming you into our volunteer team, and thank you for your willingness to share your talents with those who can benefit beyond imagine.

Ascend Hospice is a for-profit hospice company with a growing presence in the greater Richmond area of central Virginia. We are dedicated to providing compassionate care and services to terminally ill clients and their families in their homes and residence facilities. We seek to care for the whole person - mind, body, and spirit. To that end, we provide support services (social work, chaplaincy, etc.) and alternative therapies (aroma, pet, massage, etc.), in addition to quality medical care. We believe that comfort and compassion should be available to those who have moved beyond curative medicine. Our goal is to preserve dignity and emphasize the importance of quality of life as we seek to help create a meaningful final chapter in the lives of our clients and their families.
We'll work with your schedule.
