ORGANIZATION: Lyngblomsten Care Center

Interested in helping older adults stay active in the community? We are looking for volunteers to drive Lyngblomsten residents to special outings using our brand-new bus.

As a volunteer bus driver, you will:

  • Help individuals safely enter and exit the bus. This may include using a wheelchair lift.
  • Carefully and lawfully drive to the desired location and pick up at the designated time
  • Provide a relaxing and comfortable ride to passengers

Requirements:

  • Complete a DHS background screen including fingerprinting (required for working with vulnerable individuals).
  • Wear a mask and be fully vaccinated for COVID.
  • Able to be approved by Lyngblomsten insurance.
  • Pass a DOT physical paid for by Lyngblomsten.
  • Fully ambulatory and able to help someone who may be unstable on their feet.
  • A relaxed, friendly personality is a plus.

Time Commitment:

Many outings are a few hours in length. Due to the DOT physical requirement, we request that volunteers try to commit to driving at least two times per month for one year.

We will provide training for use of the bus, including the wheelchair lift.
