Are you recently retired and like to meet new people? One or two times a month you will be asked to drive a senior in the Como Park/Falcon Heights area to and from a doctor's appointment. This service is invaluable to the senior because they can no longer drive. Our seniors may be using a cane or walker but there will no wheel chair transfers with this position. Volunteer Drivers contribute greatly to helping our seniors maintain independence and makes a trip to the doctor not an all day event. Most appointments are within 4 miles of the senior's home. Monthly commitment is 2-4 hours total.

You are asked to stay with your senior for the duration of the appointment (average of one hour) so bring a good book to read or a simple project. Your smile and ride will be very welcomed by them after a visit to the doctor's office.

You are to use your own vehicle, to provide proof of insurance, and a valid license. Most rides occur Monday-Friday during the day. Our current volunteer drivers find this a very rewarding volunteer opportunity and encourage others to join them. Training is provided.

This is a wonderful opportunity for students in medical fields to gain the perspective of the patient. Great volunteer opportunity for recently retired person that likes meeting new people.
