Our Story

THE ASCEND HOSPICE CARE VISION

Ascend Hospice Care was founded in 2016 by a group of locals and continues to be operated under the local Board of Directors. 

​The goal of Ascend Hospice is to revolutionize hospice care as we know it in Northeast Louisiana.
To do so, our mission is to provide compassionate, loving, and transformational care. 

At Ascend Hospice Care, the focus is not on dying, but instead, about living in the setting of terminal illness; it is the quality of life to be had at the end of life. We embrace the sanctity of life, even a life that is approaching finality.
