About

Many seniors are no longer able to drive. Getting to their critical doctor's appointments is difficult in some cases nearly impossible. Their health could be in peril from their inability to see their doctors. Some of these seniors have no family nearby or no one to help them. Soaring cab fares are out of their income range.

You can make a difference in the lives of these seniors by providing rides to their doctors. The rides take from 2 to 3 hours including the waiting.

You can get the satisfaction out of helping another human being in this world and making their world a better, healthy place.

You can provide them with some socialization by having pleasant conversation along the way to their doctor appointments.

Some of their stories are simply amazing. You can empower seniors who may feel like throwaway people in this world they have retired from and are aging out of.

These seniors are ambulatory and able to get into cars without help. You do not provide any assistance. We contract with a transportation service for senior whe require extra care.

Contact us if you want to help and make a difference in the lives of many seniors in Greensboro.
