Client's home in Halton

Volunteers always needed for lonely, isolated older adults. 
One visit per week can bring a lonely older adults 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, attend an art show, live music, even 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.  
 
We are following the proper precautions for COVID as per government requirements
