· Visiting or calling a patient or family member
· Providing companionship - from simple conversations to exploring deep feelings
· Reading aloud or listening to music together
· Looking at photos together and sharing memories
· Writing letters
· Going for walks with a patient or family member
· Sitting with a patient so caregivers have free time (respite)
· Journaling (helping the patient record their history)
· Watching movies or playing games
· Helping with children
· Bereavement support
· Sharing a quiet moment
· Simply being present
· Setting up for training, luncheons or meetings
· Crafting projects
· And the list goes on … only limited by the time and talents you are willing to share
