LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - No One Dies Alone - the name states exactly what a program at KentuckyOne Health does, and now the program is being launched at Wishard Hospital in Indianapolis.

Volunteers in the program work three hours shifts, making themselves available for patients who are dying and may not have anyone around for their final moments of life.

Bill Peyton, a volunteer in the program explained, "Just to sit there and talk to 'em, sing a song, hold their hand, tell a funny joke, whether or not they can respond back or not. I know they'll feel your presence back in that room. I'm positive of that."
