Volunteers Needed for New Transportation Program
Say, it’s Monday, and 87-year-old Jane’s daughter-in-law has driven her from her house in Erving to see her primary care physician in Greenfield. The doctor wants Jane to visit a specialist at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield as soon as possible, so the receptionist schedules the appointment for her – next Friday at 9 a.m. That gives Jane just under two weeks to make travel arrangements.
Jane’s daughter-in-law and son are both busy that day. Due to her mobility issues, Jane will not be able to make it to the bus stop on her own.
What is Jane to do?
That’s where volunteers for the new "Rides for Health" program at LifePath will come in.
