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!
