A few minutes make a big difference

Hospice allowed to give of myself and be of service to others. Volunteering took a deeper meaning to be able to help someone who is looking for help, help that many cannot buy.

Volunteering helped me to grow and become a better person, by being open to others’ needs in time of grief and despair made me realize that even a small act of kindness like getting a warm cup of tea as my client comes in from the cold. The Day program on a cold winter day is worth a lot. A smile, a touch, a few minutes make a big difference. It taught me not to be afraid to be with sick and dying. It taught me just being with someone during this time is very comforting. You do not have to do anything, just be with your death. Thank You.
