Help out an elderly neighbor by keeping them company on appointments!
Since 1971, Heights and Hills has been promoting successful aging in the community. We provide free case management services and referrals to frail and homebound residents over the age of sixty and their loved ones in nineteen Brooklyn neighborhoods. Our goal is to ensure that all community members, regardless of age, can continue to be vital, vibrant, and visible members of the communities they have helped to build.
We need your help! Many of the people we work with are looking for comapions to help them travel to and from important medical appointments and/ or for cultural outings.
Appointment Companion Volunteers help out on an as needed basis by meeting our clietns at their homes and providing company and a steadying arm as they travel to and from appoinments. Volunteers accompany them by car service, Access-A-Ride, taxi and even bus and subway.
Appointments Companion requests are communicated via email and volunteers only respond, if, and when, they can help. Volunteer as little or as much as your schedule a and interest allows! Appointment Companion Volunteers assignments usually last between 3 and 5 hours.
