Drive our Gaithersburg seniors and adults with disabilities to medical and social service appointments in the local area. Usually, wait with the client and then return the client to home. For lengthy appointments, return and pick up the client when the client is ready.
Must have valid driver's license, clean driving record, auto insurance, and access to a reliable vehicle. A background/MVA check will be performed.
General duties include:
- Logging into the client database to book clients requests for rides and/or do so via email.
- Contacting clients at the time of booking the rides and contacting clients the day before their appointment to verify desired pickup time and destination addresses too.
- Transporting the clients to and from their medical or service appointment; target destinations are generally within a 20-mile radius of downtown Gaithersburg.
