About

Patient Navigator is a flexible volunteer opportunity where volunteers accompany seniors to medical appointments. Your role includes discussing what questions seniors may have prior to the appointment, accompanying them to the appointment, insuring their questions are answered and documenting the visit on the required forms. Travel to doctors offices in the Metrowest area, with occasional visits in Boston (mileage reimbursable). Approximately 7 hours of training prior to volunteering. 4-12 visits per year, approximately 2-6 hours each appointment.
