The Latest from Mount Carmel in Edmonton Alberta

What has been the most challenging/rewarding/surprising aspect of your volunteer placement?

The most challenging thing has been to learn to talk to myself. At Jubilee Nursing Home, where I volunteer, there are several residents who either can't speak or find it difficult and therefore don't try. A big part of my duty at Jubilee is to visit with people during a show and kind of be with them. This can get awkward when you don't know who doesn't talk. There have been a few times where I have had to carry on a conversation with myself because getting up seemed rude or inapporpriate at the time. I have gotten better, though, and I am learning who all doesn't talk.
