MEDICAL APPOINTMENT TRANSPORTATION (FISH)
To be eligible to participate in the program, residents need to be mobile or be able to use a cane or walker. The program does not have wheelchair accessible cars. We are not able to provide return transportation from any procedure or operation where anesthesia or opiates are administered.
To give us adequate time to coordinate your appointment with a driver, please call at least ten days in advance of your appointment. We will do our best to provide you with a ride.
To schedule a ride, call Evan White, MaineStay Agency and Program Coordinator, at 847-350-8090 or email@example.com.
FISH needs volunteer drivers. Volunteer drivers choose how much time they wish to devote. Some drive once a week; others drive more often. Requirements include a current driver’s license and proof of auto insurance. FISH carries supplemental liability insurance as an umbrella policy for its drivers. All trips are within the boundaries of Maine Township.
When you volunteer to drive, your rewards are great:
- Satisfaction from helping a neighbor
- Friendly chats with someone who may be lonely
- Genuine appreciation for providing a wonderful service
