Friendly Visiting Volunteer   Burlington  Halton Hills  Milton  Oakville 
Acclaim Health, Community Support Services
Client's home in Halton
Volunteers always needed for lonely, isolated Seniors - some who do not speak English. 
One visit per week can bring a lonely Senior a huge sense of worth and happiness. Seniors 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 and your new Senior Friend. 
 
Visit a socially isolated Senior in their own home. You can provide sunshine by making a new friend with a client who is still very social, friendly and happy to see you but is experiencing challenges with their memory. Many are still very physically able.  
 
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 have a long list of non-English speaking clients waiting for company. 
 
We are following the proper precautions for COVID as per government requirements
