Silent company

Sometimes silent company is all a cancer patient needs. Shelli would often fall asleep after we arrived. I think it was a feeling of not being alone, safe because someone was there. If the patient appears to be in and out of sleep, that is okay. They will know they are not alone.

Often patients don’t have much energy, and just may want your silent company. Chatter can be overrated, it’s your presence alone that can be comforting. Bring along a quiet task (a book, your electronic device or knitting) so that you can sit with your friend without them feeling like they need to entertain you if they’re tired.
