I have been a volunteer driver with Drive a Senior - West Austin since the late summer of 2009. I usually drive once a week, taking clients to medical, rehabilitation, and beauty appointments. Occasionally I help with grocery shopping. Through this opportunity, I've met a number of engaging, bright people, learned a lot about Austin's services for seniors, and actively enjoyed a number of clients' company. Most of the people I drive live within three miles of my home, so I feel as if I'm assisting neighbors. I choose the day and time of each volunteer drive, so the task fits into my schedule easily. The organization's staff is friendly, helpful, and well-organized.
