No One Dies Alone - Sacred Heart Medical Center

No one is born alone, and in the best of circumstances, no one dies alone. Yet from time to time terminally ill patients come to Sacred Heart Medical Center who have neither family nor close friends to be with them as they near the end of life.

No One Dies Alone is a volunteer program at Sacred Heart that provides the reassuring presence of a volunteer companion to dying patients who would otherwise be alone. With the support of the nursing staff, companions are thus able to help provide patients with that most valuable of human gifts: a dignified death.

Please note: As of Feb. 21, 2020, we have temporarily paused the No One Dies Alone Program to develop a long-term, sustainable support structure for the entire PeaceHealth organization. Thank you for understanding and support. If you have questions, please contact Mission Services.
