Ascend Hospice provides patients, with a life limiting condition, the opportunity to live life more fully with control, comfort, and dignity. Our team provides exceptional care including emotional and spiritual support. Volunteers are the heart of hospice and a vital member of our hospice team.

We are currently seeking volunteers to provide companionship and supportive visits to our patients and respite for their loved ones. Volunteers can help by making friendly visits, reading to patients, writing letters, and much more. One of the most important things the volunteer can offer is just being there to listen, share quiet moments of contemplation or offer a gentle touch when needed.

Hospice volunteer training is required and provided free of charge. In keeping with Medicare requirements background, DMV, and medical clearances are a part of the training process. All volunteers must be fully COVID-19 vaccinated.
