Do you have experience with Aphasia? Are you willing to help by giving 1 hr a week?

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Volunteers needed to connect with, or do activities with, individuals who have some trouble finding words or understanding speech. Patient conversation or going for a walk, making a craft or a combination of an outing with brief conversations are welcome distractions for our clients with aphasia. If you can give one hour/week to help someone, we would like to hear from you. Call or email Joanne or Hayley at Acclaim Health to discuss.   jberrigan@acclaimhealth.ca   905 827 8800 ex 2317  /  hhumenick@accliamhealth.ca 905 827 8800

Do you speak Punjabi, Kashmiri or Arabic & want to help a lonely Senior?

09:00 AM — 05:00 PM

Volunteers needed with second language in Oakville.  Seniors who are lonely because English is not their first language would love a friendly visitor.  If you speak Arabic, Kashmiri or Punjabi and are willing to spend one hour, once a week, on an ongoing basis to help a lonely Senior feel valued and connected then we would love to speak with you further.  Networking, education and appreciation events are just some of the "rewards" of volunteering with us. For more information, contact Hayley Humenick at Acclaim Health:  905 827 8800 ex 2315.

Lonely Senior Lady in Burlington

11:00 AM — 06:00 PM

Lovely Lady with some minor memory challenges would love a friendly visitor to come for tea, chat, do a craft, look at photos, tell stories, laugh and enjoy your friendship.  We have 4 ladies like this in central and west Burlington.  If you can spare one hour a week to visit one of them, your time would bring such light, delight and value to someone who sits home alone almost every weekday. Call Fiona at Acclaim Health for more information.  Volunteering with us brings great rewards and support - including free education, networking and appreciation events.  One day this could be one of us.  One hour a week is all it takes.  Fiona:  905 827 8800 ext 2314.     fmueller-carrera@acclaimhealth.ca

Be a Santa to a Senior delivers gifts to seniors in Halton Region   Scott Johnson, of Home Instead Senior Care, will be delivering gifts to seniors in Halton Region as part of the Be a Santa to a Senior program. On Tuesday, December 18th, at 11 a.m. at the Wellington Park Care Centre, Johnson and community volunteers will deliver 140 gifts to seniors who are alone or ill in the independent living and long term care centre.   According to recent Statistics Canada data, as many as 1.4 million older adults in Canada report feeling lonely.   Each year, these seniors have fewer family members and friends to provide company and care to them, which often can lead to social isolation. The holidays can be especially hard for those who are living independently and may feel lonely.   That’s where Be a Santa to a Senior fits in.  Be a Santa to a Senior collects and distributes holiday gifts for isolated and deserving seniors. Royal LePage Real Estate Glen Abbey in Oakville and Royal LePage Meadowtowne in Milton together with Remax Real Estate in Georgetown will be filling the seniors’ wish lists.  Home Instead will be delivering the gifts at the celebration on December 18th.    In its thirteenth year, Be a Santa to a Senior partners with local organizations, non-profit agencies, and volunteers from the community collecting gifts for seniors.  Since its inception over 10,000 gifts have been provided to seniors in Halton Region by Home Instead.   Home Instead Senior Care provides personal support, non-medical care and companionship services for seniors in their own homes and in care facilities in Oakville, Burlington and Milton.   WHAT: Be a Santa to a Senior gift delivery party             Hosted by Home Instead Senior Care   WHO:  Scott Johnson, Managing Director of Home Instead Senior Care   WHEN: Tuesday, December 18th at 11:00 am   WHERE: The Wellington Park Care Centre               802 Hager Ave. Burlington                         For more information or to attend the gift giving party, please contact:     Mary Ann Freedman Freedman & Associates Inc. for Home Instead Senior Care Email: mafreedman@freedmanandassociates.com

    A fun way to ring in the New Year.  Join Park Rangers who will guide you into the woods to a site where we hope to have a chorus of coyotes howl in response to our call.  Learn why they howl and some facts about this mostly misunderstood urban creature. No reservations required. Guided hikes begin at 7:00pm and 7:30pm.  Followed by Kid's Countdown bonfire at 8:30pm.  Park gates will close at 9:00pm.
