Bereavement Peer Support Volunteers Needed! 

Apply to volunteer today to start your FREE ONLINE Bereavement Peer Support Training! 

About the Bereavement Peer Support Program:

In this program, you will play a crucial role in helping to normalize the grieving process for individuals struggling to cope with the death of a loved one. As a Bereavement Peer Support Volunteer, you will provide a safe, non-judgmental space for clients to share their stories and express their feelings. Your role will involve offering comfort, support, and assistance in finding meaning and healing. Additionally, you may provide information and strategies to help clients learn to live with their loss.

Requirement:

In our Bereavement Peer Support Program, we recognize the unique strength that comes from shared experiences. Therefore, we are specifically seeking volunteers who have personally encountered a significant loss in their lives. This program operates on the principle of peer support, emphasizing that our clients often benefit immensely from sharing their challenges with someone who has navigated a similar journey of loss and grief.

The Strength of Peer Support:

Being a peer support program, we understand the profound impact that a volunteer with personal experience can have on someone struggling with grief. Your own journey through loss enables you to connect with clients on a deeper level, fostering a sense of understanding, empathy, and shared resilience. Clients often find solace in knowing that they are not alone in their grief, and your presence as a peer support volunteer can provide a source of strength and inspiration.

Your Personal Journey as a Source of Comfort:

As a Bereavement Peer Support Volunteer, your lived experience becomes a valuable asset in providing comfort and reassurance to those in need. Your ability to relate to the complex emotions of grief can offer a unique form of support, helping clients feel understood and validated in their own struggles. Through the sharing of your personal journey, you contribute to the creation of a safe, non-judgmental space where clients can openly express their feelings and find solace in the knowledge that they are not alone.

Matching Volunteers and Clients:

To further enhance the effectiveness of our support, we make efforts to pair newly trained volunteers with clients who have experienced a similar type of loss, where applicable. This matching process is designed to create a more profound connection between volunteers and clients, as it allows for a shared understanding of the specific challenges and emotions associated with a particular loss. By aligning personal experiences, we aim to create a supportive and empathetic environment that promotes healing and growth. 

A Shared Path Towards Healing:

In joining this program, you become an integral part of a community that understands the transformative power of shared experiences. Your willingness to give back by helping others navigate their grief is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit. Together, as a community of volunteers who have walked similar paths of loss, we aim to provide comfort, support, and the hope of healing to those who seek it.

Training commitments:

Our upcoming Bereavement Peer Support Training is scheduled for winter 2025. Training details are as follows:

Dates: Mondays

Time: 1 pm – 3:30 pm 

Delivery mode: ONLINE via Zoom link

Course duration: 10 weeks

Ongoing: Following training, volunteers are typically asked to commit 1 hour per week, matched with a client for approximately 3 months.

Friendly Visiting Volunteer   Burlington  Halton Hills  Milton  Oakville 
Acclaim Health, Community Support Services
Client's home in Halton

Volunteers are always needed for lonely, isolated older adults.  One visit per week can bring a lonely older adult a huge sense of worth and happiness. Those who are isolated, often find their recall of daily details is frosted over. A little social contact can melt that ice and bring warmth to you both. 

Visits are weekly for as little as one-hour time commitment for an in-home visit or a couple of hours if you care to take them to an activity in which you share an interest such as coffee, shopping, attending an art show, live music, or even go for a walk by the lake.  By volunteering, you may also be providing some much-needed support to a caregiver or family member simply by visiting one of our wonderful clients. 

Your visit helps maintain and encourage the client's confidence and independence.

Acclaim Health, Community Support Services
Client's home, apartment, supported living or retirement home (Oakville, Burlington, North Halton)

Clients in the Memory Visiting Program are in need of someone to remind them that they do matter, and to remind them of why they matter. Ask about their interests and their abilities and then use this week after week to guide your conversations and activities.  
 
You’ll provide a friendly social connection outside of the client’s normal social sphere and engage the client in activities or conversations that appeal to the client’s unique interests and abilities. This may involve looking at family photos, going out for a walk, or simply sharing coffee and conversation. 
 
You’ll also be giving the family caregiver(s) a short break – a very important part of the support you’re providing. 
 
Training is available to assist you in supporting your client. The training includes suggested activities and strategies you can use to engage your client. Plus, our Care Managers are always available to support you and your client.
