Give the Gift of Your Time
Unique to the service of hospice, volunteers play a special role in the care of our patients and families. Carefully selected and specially trained volunteers work alongside hospice staff to provide support for our patients and their families. Hospice volunteers provide companionship, short periods of caregiver respite, light household or outdoor assistance and diverse activities. In additional to supportive care with families, volunteers are also involved in bereavement support, provide office assistance and help with special events and activities.

Additionally, Alegent Health is the first healthcare system in Omaha to offer the No One Dies Alone (NODA) ™ program. NODA volunteers are companions to the dying, providing comfort and support to the patient and their family. NODA volunteers are a peaceful, calming presence that lets the patient know they are not alone during their final moments of life.
