At MyRide West TN, we are dedicated to supporting as many older adults as possible. We are always striving to make a difference in people's lives! You can help us with that mission by by becoming a "Waymaker". Our volunteers drivers do more than just drive, they are a listening ear, a hand to hold, a smile when someone is down and a friendly face. So we like to say we have "Waymakers" because they 'make a way for our older adults in our community'. We only ask our "Waymakers" to commit 3 hours a month, but encourage you to do as much as you feel led to do.

To find more information and complete the volunteer application please visit https://www.myridewesttn.org/ or call 844-803-0169.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to bring together and leverage programs, resources, and organizations to protect and ensure the quality of life and independence of older Tennesseans and adults with disabilities.

Description

As the State Unit on Aging (SUA), the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability (TCAD) provides comprehensive and coordinated services that address multiple social and behavioral determinants of health relevant to older adults and adults with disabilities. Services provided by TCAD and its network address multiple population needs including, but not limited to, transportation assistance, home delivered meals, SNAP outreach, long-term care resident rights, Medicare insurance counseling services and social support for older adults. TCAD’s capacity to deliver these services is supported by a wide range of partnerships and collaborations within our community integrated health network, including nine Area Agencies on Aging and Disability (AAAD), the 120+ network of local senior centers and local nonprofit organizations. This network facilitates streamlined access to these services and supports through a statewide Information & Assistance line and the nine AAADs who serve as Single Points of Entry.
