End-of-Life Care:
No One Dies Alone Program

Location of Care

OU Medical Center


No one is born alone, and in the best of circumstances, no one dies alone. Yet from time to time, terminally ill patients who have neither family nor close friends come to OU Medical Center and have no one to  be with them as they near the end of life.

No One Dies Alone is a volunteer program that provides the reassuring presence of a volunteer 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.
