About

About two times a month you will be asked to drive one of the seniors we serve to and from a doctor's appointment. This service is invaluable to the seniors because they can no longer drive. 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.

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 most rewarding volunteer opportunity and encourage others to join them.

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