Aging/Senior Volunteer Driver Program

The Volunteer Driver Program provides medical rides for individuals who are 60 years of age and over, and who have no other means of transportation.  The driver will pick the person up at their home, take them to their appointment and return them to their home.  If needed, the driver will stay with the person and assist him or her in getting to the correct office or next appointment.  Most of the rides are provided within Sheboygan County, but rides to appointments out-of-county are also possible. 

Riders must be ambulatory.  The use of a cane or walker is allowed, as long as the walker can be folded up and stored safely in the trunk.  If a wheelchair is needed after arriving at the appointment, the driver will obtain one from the clinic or hospital and will assist the rider in getting to his or her appointment.  The driver can also accompany the person going to the lab or x-ray, if needed.  The driver will wait for the person either in the doctor’s waiting room or in the car, depending on the amount of assistance needed.  On long distance trips, the driver may take care of some personal errands while waiting to take the person home after the appointment or medical visit has been completed.

Riders are requested to call 24-hours in advance for local trips, and at least 48-hours or more if the trip is out of county.  A donation to the program is suggested.  A stamped, pre-addressed envelope to return donations to the Aging and Disability Resource Center will be presented at the end of your appointment along with the estimated mileage. The estimated mileage may be used to establish the amount of the suggested donation.  All donations are appreciated.
