No Veteran Dies Alone

The “No Veteran Dies Alone” (NVDA) program is inspired by the program called “No One Dies Alone,” and is designed to honor Veterans and to meet the needs of those Veterans who, for whatever reason, find themselves alone. This training manual and videos created in partnership with the PsychArmor Institute and Department of Veterans Affairs assists educators in engaging the community, especially Veteran volunteers, in improving end-of-life (EOL) care for Veterans. After completing their training, these volunteers will have expertise in military culture and the dying process and be able to provide the comfort of presence at the bedside when family and friends are unable to be near their loved ones. The two videos based on the NVDA volunteer training units “Introduction to Hospice and Palliative Care” and “Concepts of Death, Dying, and Grief” provide an overview so they may contribute to the comfort as part of the care plan to honor Veterans’ preferences.
