The vigil volunteer works to ensure that no patient dies alone. The volunteer's role is to be a calming presence for the patient who is actively dying and for their families.
Volunteers are asked to sit vigil a minimum two hours and are called upon as their schedules allows (vigil needs may occur 24 hours a day each day of the week).
