Activities and Honors

NODA (No one dies alone)- NODA volunteers are companions to the dying, providing comfort and support to the patient and their family. NODA volunteers are a peaceful, calming presence that lets the patient know they are not alone during their final moments of life. Volunteers typically pick up night vigil shifts, giving family members a chance to shower and sleep. Volunteers are available to talk, read,play music, quietly hold the patient’s hand and pray upon patient/family request. While volunteers do not perform nursing duties, they do ease chapped lips and alert nurses to patient needs.
