Become a End of Life Volunteer
Join the movement in End of Life Care at Ascend Hospice
Just as doulas exist to welcome people into life through birth, end of life doulas accompany the dying and their family during the final stages of life!
Ascend Hospice has partnered with Quality of Life Care and their unique, end of life doula training to provide comprehensive holistic training to volunteers willing to become an end of life doula. Our program provides the tools necessary to teach the doula how to provide support & guidance to people during their end of life journey. End of Life Doula Certificates are awarded once training and required service is completed.

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.
