Since her family lives far away, and her husband has passed, Mrs. V really appreciates a lift to her doctor appointments.
Ongoing, Local, Micro-Volunteering Opportunity! ElderNet of Lower Merion and Narberth is seeking volunteers with weekday availability to drive home-bound seniors and younger adults with disabilities to local doctor appointments. These appointments are generally scheduled M-F, 8 am to 5 pm.
The volunteer picks the rider up at their home, takes them to the appointment, then returns them to their home. The rider may or may not need to be accompanied into the appointment for support. The total time from the volunteer's home and back is usually about 2 hours.
The volunteer can take assignments that fit into their schedule on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis. Any amount of rides you are able to provide keeps a person in their home longer, and is greatly appreciated! Please call our Volunteer Coordinator, Liz Hill at 610-525-0706 with questions.
