Non-Medical Transportation Program
We are accepting new clients for this program, but ask that you allow a week to schedule an intake with the Program Coordinator before asking for ride requests. We are always accepting additional volunteers for this program, as well. Please refer a friend or family member to drive for Elder Network. If you are a current client of Elder Network's Transportation Program, please allow at least one week of advanced notice for placing ride requests, due to increased volumes.
Elder Network started a pilot program to provide transportation to non-medical locations this year, in order to serve emergent needs of seniors in quarantine. Locations that volunteer drivers transport clients to include the grocery store, hair salon, social service agencies, places of worship, legal services, their designated voting location, etc. Please call us at 507-285-5272 for more information or to set up this service. This service is available in Olmsted County for those of greatest need, with priority placed on medical appointments being filled first.
Not all services are available in all counties. Please contact us if you aren’t sure what you need. We are here to help.
