Help to fight loneliness in seniors with Sharing Side By Side! L'Arche Comox Valley is
looking for volunteers to take part in this worthwhile project this spring. Each volunteer is paired
with a senior participant. They meet regularly (usually once a week) and the volunteer listens
and records the stories that the participant shares with them. The volunteer then writes the
stories out and helps to create a book, cd or other creative way to share the participant's life
stories. This project usually takes 3 to 4 months and volunteers set their own limits as to how
much time they are able to give. Past volunteers have found the experience to be extremely
rewarding. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Tiss Cross at
[email protected] or phone 250-871-6288.
