Sounds like a great program...
The ‘No Veteran Dies Alone’ (NVDA) Program at the Boise VA Medical Center is a one-of-a-kind program in which volunteers provide companionship and assistance to veterans who are entering the final stages of life. NVDA volunteers ‘fill-in’ and provide comfort at the bedside at times when family and friends are unable to be present. The NVDA program helps ensure that no one veteran will have to face the challenge of death alone.
If you are interested in becoming a NVDA volunteer please contact the Office of Voluntary Service at the Boise VA Medical Center by calling (208) 422-1175.
