Why is Ascend Hospice Care different from other Hospice companies?

Our story is one of compassion, persistence, and zeal. Several years ago, two dedicated nurses saw the need for a hospice care service that was empathetic, supportive, holistic, and always only-a-call-away from immediate help.

Today, that fledgling agency, Ascend Hospice Care, has grown into a robust, full-featured, and highly regarded source of skilled companionship and comfort during what is a challenging time of transition.

Headed by Melinda Bass, LVN, Karie Spell, RN, and Albert Palmarez, Ascend strives to make one’s last months, days, and hours as fulfilling and comfortable as possible. We’re here to ensure that you can live your remaining time in the manner you seek and do what is most rewarding to you.

We put you in the driver’s seat, helping restore your dignity, discerning your needs, and providing expert health care, guidance, and support as you navigate this final journey.

Based in Baytown, Texas, Ascend has grown significantly, now catering to hospice patients within a 50-mile radius, spreading hope and care across the Greater Houston area and parts of southeast Texas.

When the need arises, please consider becoming our next patient and experiencing the Ascend difference of the highest quality of skilled care and loving support.
