Memory Bears Needed!
Ascend Hospice is seeking volunteers with sewing experience to create Memory Bears to help comfort families who have lost loved ones. The volunteer would need to feel comfortable creating a lovable, cuddly teddy bear friend out of clothing or other fabric. Please note the fabric would have belonged to one of our patients who has since passed. Patterns will be provided, as will other needed supplies. Please help us to bring comfort to our bereaved families!

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.
