You would also work with a wonderful group of committed ElderDog volunteers in Dartmouth, NS. Your role would include: responding to inquiries; conducting initial visits with clients to determine services available/required; overseeing senior support volunteers including ensuring criminal records checks and paperwork are up to date; scheduling home visits; keeping records of Program activities; mediating client / volunteer conflicts or issues; communicating with Pawd leaders, members, and others on an ongoing basis.   For more information or to express interest in coordinating this very rewarding and important service for seniors and their dogs, reply to this post or contact info@elderdog.ca.
