You are here

Position description: 

We are in urgent need of volunteer drivers for our Kerrisdale, Oakridge, Marpole Better at Home Program!  If you have two hours each week to spare we could really use your help!  We have many diverse seniors (lots in their eighties and nineties) who need some assistance getting to their medical appointments.  You would pick them up at home, drive them to the appointment, wait (or grab a coffee) and drive them home again.  The coordinator manages the schedule and will send you an email one week in advance to see if you can do a ride.  You simply say yes or no!  We are able to cover the cost of increasing your insurance to 3 million third party liability and we can also cover the cost of the ride to the appointment with 54 cent per kilometer.  Make a difference in the ife of a senior today and call us to set up a time to meet with Linnea, the coordinator of the Better at Home program.

Deliverables/Duties: 

Pick up senior at their home, drive to appointment, return when appointment is finished.

Drive safely and be patient with seniors.
