Margaret Leahy, Boise State University School of Nursing emeritus faculty, was part of an Idaho Statesman article which profiled Saint Alphonsus’ No One Dies Alone program.
The No One Dies Alone program places volunteer companions with dying patients who would otherwise be alone. With the support of the nursing staff, the volunteer companions are able to help provide patients with a dignified death. Leahy volunteers with the No One Dies Alone program as a companion.
