One visit a week can bring a lonely Senior a huge sense of worth and happiness. Seniors who are isolated often find their recall of daily details are frosted over. A little social contact can melt that ice and bring warmth to you and your new Senior friend. By becoming a Memory Visiting Volunteer you will tap in to your natural caring abilities to provide companionship to adults experiencing memory loss in the early stages of dementia. Many clients are still very social and enjoy doing puzzles, crafts, and going for walks.

Volunteering with Acclaim Health will also provide much needed support to caregivers. Training will be provided to make you feel confident and comfortable in this role. Don’t want to volunteer alone? Sign up with a friend!

If you have a few hours to spare a week, enjoy driving and love children then this is the volunteer role for you. Volunteer drivers take children and on occasion parents, to various appointments; therapy sessions, family visits, counselling sessions, court dates, support groups, and other important meetings. 

As a driver you become a familiar and friendly face the children can depend on, someone who will listen to their stories and bring a smile to their faces at what can be a very confusing time in their lives. 

Drivers are currently needed in Milton and Halton Hills, during day time hours. Some do a specific drive or two per week, others are called upon on a daily basis and yet others do once a month. We are always in need of reliable, readily available volunteer drivers.
