Ascend Hospice

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 86 people are interested

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 their loved ones so we are looking 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 prayer cards, help in crafting efforts (including rosery bracelets, portraits for families, quilts, blankets, and more)
