Companion Errand Program
The Companion Errand Program provides our
seniors with transportation and a companion to accompany them to
physician appointments, dental visits, physical therapy, medical tests, etc.
This program provided 1100 hours of service to over 80 seniors and
caregivers during the last twelve months and the numbers continue to grow.
Those served depend on the service for something many of us who drive take for
granted: a means to get from one place to another.
But our companions donít just provide transportation; they go along with the
senior to these appointments.
Demand for the Companion Errand Program
continues to overwhelm our capabilities to provide this vital service. We
greatly appreciate the financial support for this program through donations from
clients served, their families, local citizens, and area businesses. The
program is currently partially funded by a Federal Title IIIE Caregiver
Assistance grant through
WestMass ElderCare, our local Aging Service Access Point.
