Ascend Hospice


This Student Volunteers Council project is not active for Spring 2021.

Volunteers assist in hospice care by providing comfort and support to patients at local nursing homes. In addition to weekly patient interactions, volunteers will have the opportunity to witness and reflect upon current models of palliative care in America. Ascend asks that prospective volunteers be willing to commit 1-3 hours each week to visiting their assigned patients and facilities.
