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 also doesn't make the task of getting out of the house feel like a mountain to climb.
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.
