No One Dies Alone
A new program that will begin in April, 2012.
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 Kaiser Permanente 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 the Kaiser Hayward and Fremont hospitals that provides the reassuring presence of a compassionate companion to dying patients who would otherwise be alone. With the support of the nursing staff, companions are able to help provide patients with that most valuable of human gifts: a dignified death.
