Volunteer escorts can accompany any senior, including those who use wheelchairs, walkers, and other assistive devices. The senior must arrange transportation separately, but the escort can assist the senior with getting to and from the vehicle, getting into and out of the vehicle, and visiting with health care professionals. Please note that this is NOT a transportation service — this is a medical escort service only. You will need to arrange transportation separately.
