Opportunity Description:

Hello volunteers I am a Social Worker at Autism Services of Saskatoon, posting on behalf of a young adult client located in Saskatoon who needs a volunteer support person. They are not eligible for community services. Due to disabilities they need support with various tasks which may at times be overwhelming for them independently including: Cleaning household Organizing household Meal prep and food management Misc tasks around the house as needed Planning and managing appointments Misc paperwork support and phone call accountability   Other tasks may arise throughout work together. The client has stated they also struggle with flexibility and task-control however is open to hep and working to improve this – sometimes they simply need someone present for accountability to get the task completed, termed “body doubling”. Challenges also include executive dysfunction (i.e. time management, task initiation, planning, etc.), and burnout. Having another person help manage and initiate these tasks would be a huge help a few times throughout the month or as challenges arise. POSITION REQUIREMENTS: Preferably over 25 years old Own vehicle and/or ability to transport self Client has 2 pet cats, so please consider this when expressing interest if allergies are relevant.   To facilitate support I, their Social Worker, will be the main first contact for any interested volunteers.
