bereavement acclaim

Help those with the loss of a loved one, work through their grief, and find a way to move forward. Visits (normally) take place in their home or at another mutually convenient location. Hopefully by the end of your training, we will be able to resume visiting in person. Wonderful training in one-on-one bereavement peer support will begin in September. After training, our Bereavement Counselor will match you with a client to visit for a period of 3 to 12 months (depending on the client’s needs), making all the difference in their journey through grief.

Benefits:

  • Free 10 week virtual training in one-on-one bereavement support (Certificate provided when matched with a client)
  • Ongoing support from your Acclaim Health Bereavement Counselor
  • Volunteer Appreciation and Recognition Program
  • Special Volunteer Events
  • Optional and ongoing Volunteer Educational workshops

Volunteering only takes 1-2 hours per week, but will make all the difference. We ask for a minimum of 1 year commitment, upon completion of your Bereavement Peer Support training.
