Do you love people but don't like to make small talk? Introverts and quiet types are the perfect volunteers for our Sit Beside Me program as well as our patients who are lonely but just want people who are willing to sit and people watch with them. Being comfortable with silence is a key gift in a hospice volunteer! If you would like to put your depth of soul in the service of helping others, this is your opportunity. We utilize volunteers to sit quietly beside a patient who may be in their last hours to days - checking for signs of discomfort, reading scripture, making sure there is music or other soothing elements in the room. Training is provided. We can use these volunteers morning, noon, night and weekends. Covid-19 has made volunteers even more important. Nursing homes and other senior-services are under-staffed, and the mental health crisis stemming from the pandemic is impacting our seniors as well. Nonjudgmental, calm and supportive companions are life-
