What we are looking for:
Samaritan Volunteers help home-bound patients with transportation needs such as driving to doctors’ appointments, running errands or picking up groceries and medical supplies. As a Samaritan Volunteer, you will use your own vehicle to help support patients and their family members/caregivers and provide them with greater independence and improved quality-of life. Volunteers are required to attend a training course to learn about the agency and its policies, safety issues, different types of diseases and how best to accommodate patients within the scope of the program. Our next training begins September 10th.    Volunteers are provided with ongoing support and supervision by the Volunteer Coordinator.
