Volunteers Needed for No Veteran Dies Alone Program at Cheyenne VA Medical Center

Amy RichardsTSM

Emotionally mature volunteers are needed for a variety of positions for the No Veteran Dies Alone Program at Cheyenne VA Medical center. Volunteers are needed for a variety of areas including program coordination, clerical assistance, patient and family support. Some volunteers will have an opportunity to be available on-call during the death and dying process.

“The Cheyenne VA aims to be proactive, personalized and veteran-centered,” said Carol Carr, Chief of the Chaplains Service. “Along with community partners and compassionate volunteers, the goal is to tirelessly Connect, Appreciate, Respond and Empower (C.A.R.E.) for Veterans at every stage of life. In the spirit of No Man Left Behind, our commitment is that No Veteran is Alone, thus No Veteran Dies Alone.”

According to American Association of Colleges of Nursing, “more than 54,000 Veterans – mostly from World War II and Korea — die each month, and the Department of Veterans Affairs Hospice and Palliative Care Initiative (VAHPC) is trying to improve hospice and palliative care for them. Given that the number of Vietnam-era Veterans over 65 years of age will continue to grow through 2034, so too will the need for hospice and critical care in the VA system.”

Since the official launch at Cheyenne VAMC in May of 2012, the No Veteran Dies Alone (NDVA) Program uses volunteers to honor Veterans and to meet the emotional needs of those who would otherwise be alone at the end of life.
