As a Move Coordinator, you will be the puppeteer behind a move – the person who puts it together and makes it happen.

Assemble volunteer move teams using a database and e-mail
Coordinate the date/time and other logistics of a move and ensure all clients and volunteers are available

violence. Shelter Movers has experienced a 30% increase in the demands for our
services since the beginning of the pandemic.

The Dementia Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County (DSORC) is pleased to be developing virtual, remote, and socially distanced solutions in an effort to continue providing support to caregivers and persons living with dementia while we are not able to do so in a pre COVID-19 model.

Volunteers play a crucial role in the Make a Connection, Take a Break program, by providing meaningful social interactions to persons living with dementia, and to enable caregivers to take a break.

Visits are typically 20 minutes to 1 hour on a weekly basis, and, if virtual, are on a variety of platforms such as the phone or Zoom, depending on the client’s preference and capabilities. The activities that make up these visits can vary, from simply chatting, listening to music, reading out loud, sharing photos, or going for a walk as examples. Whichever the activity, you will find this to be a rewarding and meaningful experience.

Primary Role and Responsibilities:

Maintain regular communication via e-mail and telephone

Prepare and host remote and/or in-person visits

- Reliability – able to honour scheduled commitments
