Stony Brook Southampton Hospital Seeking Volunteers for No One Dies Alone (NODA) Program

Southampton, NYStony Brook Southampton Hospital is seeking new Pastoral Care volunteers for its No One Dies Alone (NODA) program, which ensures no patient is alone at his or her end-of-life. A free training session will be held on Thursday, January 25 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Hospital, located at 240 Meeting House Lane in Southampton.

Volunteers are also needed for “Compassionate Companions,” the Hospital’s extension of the program that was created in 2016 for the sole purpose of providing companionship to patients seeking company in the absence of family and friends.

The Hospital’s NODA program was initiated several years ago by Palliative Care Chaplain Mary Hogarty and is comprised of volunteers from throughout the South Fork community, as well as Hospital employees.

Those who are interested in attending the training session, or learning more about the Hospital’s NODA program, must call Ms. Hogarty at (631) 726-8296.
