At the bedside, volunteers bring calm presence and undivided, mindful attention. They read aloud, offer residents companionship, and welcome visitors. They provide support, levity, and joy. They assist nursing staff with care needs and sit vigil. Most important, they stay alert to the many, often subtle ways that residents voice their needs, helping volunteers create the most comfortable and compassionate end-of-life experience possible.
