In the Halton community for over 85 years, Acclaim Health focuses on providing people with quality, community-based health care services including supporting physical and mental well-being through independent living, reducing social isolation, innovative dementia care, end of life care and bereavement support.
Acclaim has a large volunteer program that helps widen the services offered to Halton residents. Unfortunately, many people in Halton are stuck on waiting lists, waiting for support due to the high demand for Acclaim’s assistance. You can help! Acclaim has several volunteer opportunities open and training for these positions starts in September. It’s a great opportunity to give back to the community.
People who volunteer build strong connections in their community, feel happier, and can ultimately improve their mental and physical health. Check out our story regarding a Widowed Friends volunteer working in the bereavement care program.
