Volunteer Medical Driver / Escort for a visually-impaired neighbor in the Worcester-area

Save to Favorites

Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired

A volunteer driver escort will help a legally blind or vision impaired person be able to get to his or her medical appointments. A driver escort drives the person to their appointment and also guides them in safely to the waiting area. This volunteer will wait until the appointment is completed and then drive the client back home. Through this valuable service, people who otherwise would not be able to access and safely navigate medical facilities, due to their vision loss, can reliably and securely make it to important and routine medical appointments.

Volunteer driver escorts use their own vehicles and a small per trip stipend is available. Training and supervision is provided initially and ongoing as needed.
