We are looking for compasionate people to drive seniors 50 and over and people who are visually impaired 18 and over to go to events and appointments. You will use your own car and we reimburse you $.40 per mile. You donate your time.
This program is unique. We have no restriction on the purpose of a ride. We take people to lunch, to visit friends, visit cemetaries and go to work.
We are in the middle of a Silver Tsunami! In Bloomfield, for example, 25% of the population is over 65. By 2025 this will grow to 31%. 45% of residents are 50+ versus 35% statewide.
In our ten towns there are 70,124 people over 50. They will most likely live 6-10 years beyond their ability to drive. We can not leave them homebound!
We are flexible regarding the time you have available. Our software even can allow you to pick the rides that you have time for.
This is very rewarding. Check us out on Facebook.
We hope to meet you soon. Please call us at 860-758-7833.
