Dance With Me It is late Friday night and I’m sitting vigil. His son is exhausted from work and needed some time to go to his home and sleep. We are listening to Etta James "At Last" and as I sing to him, he whispers the words and taps his finger on the hospital bed railing to the sway of Etta’s soulful sound. I ask him if he’ll dance with me. We hold hands and he whispers "I love you."

No One Dies Alone Program

With us, no one dies alone.

Our No One Dies Alone volunteers are specially trained to wait with our patients as their time of transition draws close. We support our patients as they are in their final 24-48 hours, especially if they live alone and are without family or friends.

Our team is as committed to medical and safety guidelines as it is prepared to advocate on behalf of our loved ones in the midst of challenging times.

We sit bedside and hold the hand of our patients, we read poems to them, we listen to their favorite music as they lay with shallow breath. We master the art of being present beside our patients and are always accessible to the family in the most challenging of circumstances. We are fiercely compassionate and vigilantly support each patient, so that no one dies alone.
