During these uncertain times, how can we help?

You bravely answered your country’s call to service and earned the right to be called a solider. You experienced many things that only your brothers and sisters in arms can related to and now those brothers and sisters need you again. Many veterans experience unique and often traumatic experiences during their service, and often veterans have special needs that require specialized care at the end of life. Hospice care can help address these needs and can be very meaningful to veterans. One of the most important services that hospice can provide is volunteer services which allow for valued companionship to these most deserving individuals.
We are currently recruiting veterans or active duty/reserve soldiers to participate in our Veteran to Veteran Volunteer program. This unique program is tailored towards honoring your service and special qualifications while pairing you with fellow Veterans who are receiving hospice services. Some example of activities you may do with a Veteran Patient include assisting Veterans in reminiscing/telling life stories, educating and assisting Veteran Patients in receiving Veteran benefits, taking part in pinning ceremonies or distributing certificates for Veterans Day and other recognition events, assisting in replacing lost medals, and generally providing a social and emotional outlet for these Veterans to be able to relate to someone who truly understands.
If you are interested in helping to provide this service to your fellow Veterans please click on the "I want to help button" above. We look forward to welcoming you to our Volunteer Corps.

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.
