Michigan Veteran Homes Seek Volunteers For No Member Dies Alone Program

When they were called upon to defend our country, our veterans were there serving and protecting. When it comes time for the hero’s farewell, many of our vets spend their last days alone.

The Michigan Veterans Homes (MVH) is seeking volunteers to join the No Member Dies Alone (NMDA) program. This one-of-a-kind program allows volunteers to provide bedside comfort when friends and family are unable to be there for their loved ones. 

Volunteers will partake in acts of kindness such as having conversation, reading or playing music, or just holding the hand of one of our veterans so that they don’t have to transition alone.

MVH needs volunteers at their facilities located in Grand Rapids, Chesterfield Township, and Marquette. They will provide all necessary training such as bedside protocol, communication skills and self-care, as well as privacy regulations.
