ORGANIZATION: Ascend Hospice

  • 104 people are interested

Share your joy of writing and spread smiles to patients on our Hospice services.
(Please note this is not a Pen-Pal service due to HIPAA.)

Letters may be mailed or emailed. You may also share a greeting card, a short note, a picture you've drawn, or anything you feel like sharing.

Some things to keep in mind when writing your letter:

Letters can be handwritten or typed.

* Address your letter "Greetings,".
* Focus on the positive
* State in your letter that you are writing on behalf of Ascend Health.
* No COVID19 or terminal illness talk.
* Include photos? Yes! But no photos of people.
* No politics or over personal information.
* Do write about where you live - your favorite places, the sights, the smells, things you celebrate, your pets, etc
* Please sign only your first name to letters.

For example:

Greetings,
On behalf of Ascend, I wanted to reach out and say hello. I am writing to you from *insert city, state, or country here* . I was born here and am a die hard KC Royals baseball fan. One of my favorite memories of going to a game was taking my grandson for the first time and seeing the smile on his face as a fly ball whizzed past us.

I am now working from home full-time and this has made my cat very confused. She keeps walking through the house with the feline equivalent of a frown on her face. But then she curls up in my lap as I work and all is right in both of our worlds.

Remember, you are part of the Ascend family and we are here for you.


Take care,
*sign with first name only*
