Ascend hospice is seeking creative and caring individuals looking for remote opportunities to give back and help terminally ill patients in the community. With the current issues many of our patients have been isolated without the ability's to have visits from there loved ones so we are look for creative ideas to bring joy to our patients. Volunteers can make phone calls, be pen palls, assist the families in creating memory videos of the patient's life, make cards with words of encouragement, donate pray cards, help in crafting efforts (including rosery bracelets, portraits for families, quilts, blankets, and more)

For information on training and support services available, please contact our office at: 816-584-8111 and ask to speak with a Volunteer Coordinator.
