Drives for seniors to “routine medical” appointments they otherwise would be unable to make
Senior Neighbors are asked to call MCCC 14 days in advance for transportation. MCCC arranges the transportation with registered MCCC volunteers.
MCCC volunteers provide their vehicle, time, and gas. The volunteer picks the client up at their residence, takes them to the appointment, stay the duration of the appointment, and returns the client to their residence. Volunteer driving opportunities are dictated by the date and time of the client’s medical appointment. MCCC is respectful of caring volunteer schedules, preferences for days of the week they are available, and locations they are comfortable driving to. And “no” is always an acceptable volunteer response should a personal commitment be a priority.
- MCCC also offers “quality of life” drives on weekends: i.e. for grocery shopping, banking, etc.
Senior Neighbors are asked to call MCCC 14 days in advance for such requests.
MCCC volunteer driving opportunities are respectful of the volunteer schedule. The volunteer is given the date the senior neighbor has requested transportation and encouraged to call the client two days in advance to coordinate the round trip, establish an agreed to time for the drive, location destination, and estimated duration. “No” is always an acceptable volunteer response should a personal commitment be a priority.
MCCC makes every effort to accommodate such senior neighbor transportation requests. MCCC does reserves the right to inform clients when MCCC cannot honor a request because a volunteer is not available to address the transportation need.
