Note- Volunteers must be 18+ to participate in this program.
For Appointment Buddies, volunteers will partner with senior clients to help them get to and from medical appointments. By participating in this program, senior clients will have a Met Council volunteer to travel with and get them to their appointment safely and at an appropriate time while also decreasing the feeling of loneliness.
In order to ensure our clients are matched with trustworthy volunteers, Met Council staff meets with each volunteer to go over the program and do a background check to see if they are a good fit. Onsite training is also provided to show volunteers how to properly transport clients to and from their appointments.
