No One Dies Alone Training Class June 19th Featuring Special Guest Sandra Clarke; Volunteers are Needed Around the Portland Metro to Sit Bedside with Dying Individuals

Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) June 14, 2013

Not everyone goes to their deathbed surrounded by loved ones— which is why Sandra Clarke, CCRN, began the No One Dies Alone (NODA) program in November 2001 at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Eugene, Oregon. The goal of the program is to provide companionship and support for dying individuals so that no patient dies alone.

Please join us for a two hour training session on June 19th (details below). Sandra Clarke will give a special presentation on why she started NODA and why it is such a vital volunteer service to our communities.

Bedside companions act as surrogate family members by holding a bedside vigil with patients who are typically in their last 24 or 36 hours of life. The program supports a time when nursing is no longer needed, but the loving presence of a compassionate individual is valued. Families are extremely appreciative of volunteers of NODA for the assurance that their loved one will not be alone during the final stages of life.
