The Dementia Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County (DSORC) is pleased to be developing virtual solutions in an effort to continue providing support to caregivers and persons living with dementia while we are not able to do so in person.
We are currently seeking applications from tech-savvy volunteers interested in meeting remotely with caregivers. Volunteers in this role will provide caregiver respite through virtual “visits” to persons living with dementia. Visits will be tailored to each individual’s interests/hobbies, and could take the form of simple chatting, to sessions with curated information based on personal interest (for example, if a participant really enjoys fishing, photos and stories, the friendly visitor could prepare a plan to screen share photos and read stories and elicit conversation). Other sessions could be around music reminiscence, singing, etc.
Virtual Visits may take place on a variety of different platforms depending on personal preference and technical capability of the client, and may include telephone, Zoom, Facetime, or another mutually agreed upon technology. If there is interest for a group session, there is the possibility to discuss offering additional volunteer support in leading a group session.
See full description for qualifications and screening requirements.
Interested applicants should submit their CV and a cover letter describing their interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Turul is currently searching for students interested in getting experience in working with a legal and business services startup. While a small stipend may be provided, this should be viewed more as a volunteer opportunity for those looking to get some professional experience.

Through this experience you will gain experience in:
(i) Assisting in the creation and publication of social media content;
(ii) Completing legal and business related research and reports;
(iii) Drafting and editing of templates, forms, and contracts; and
(iv) Whatever else you want to learn when it comes to a business and legal services start-up.
