About 9/11 Day- Assist Seniors with Travel: Appointment Buddies!

65c6b8be 319f 437a b9b1 100ae90b97d5

Appointment Buddies is a direct way to help a homebound senior in need. Volunteers partner with senior clients to help then get to and from medical appointments. This program aims to offer assistance and support to our senior clients as well as to provide an important social network.

It is often a challenge for seniors to travel to and from appointments, and they are often forced to rely on inconsistent services that may get them to their appointments either late or hours before they begin. By participating in Appointment Buddies, the client will have a Met Council volunteer to travel with and get them to their appointment safely and at an appropriate time while also decreasing the feeling of lonliness.

Requirements & Commitment:
-Background Check
-Must be at least 18
-Orientation or Training
