About

Do you enjoy spending time with Older Adults? Would you like to support people living with early-stage memory loss in your community? Your time is valuable, and here at Gloria’s Way we appreciate each moment you volunteer.

Transportaion Volunteer - Gloria's Way matches volunteer drivers with older adults living with memory loss, needing a way to get around. Our volunteer drivers use their own cars to provide door-to-door rides to medical appointments, personal appointments, events, or light errands within a 5 mile radius of Fairmount blvd & Warrensville center road in University Heights. A typical round trip takes 1-3 hours; a one-way drop off is about 30mins - 1hour.

Why Drive a senior adult living with memory loss?

- Family members may be distant or sometimes are unavailable.

- Public transportation is not easily accessible or designed for older adults living with dementia.

- Uber service can be costly on a fixed income and/or not accessible to older adults.

Volunteer driving is fun & easy

- There’s no minimum weekly commitment.

- Drivers fit trips to their schedules.

- Rides can be set up by phone or via email.

- We encourage family members - young and old - to ride along.

Requirements designed to help us protect our older adult passengers:

- Be 20 years of age and have a high-school graduate.

- Provide a valid driver’s license and car insurance.

- Pass background and driver record checks.

Volunteers work with clients to determine weekly driving schedule that works best for both.
