About

Description

West Austin Drive-a-Senior is a well-established 5013c non-profit organization which serves seniors who no longer drive, but have a strong desire to "age in place,."

Our volunteers provide rides to medical appointments, grocery shopping, and other social events to seniors aged 65 and over in the neighborhoods of Downtown, Central, Old West, Tarrytown, Hyde Park, Rosedale and North Shoal Creek.

Some volunteers prefer not to drive, but want to give. These volunteers serve as Friendly Visitors, Life History Recorders, and Musicians or readers.
