Clients in the Wheels for Independence program pay a modest annual fee for unlimited rides. Caring volunteer drivers provide door-to-door transportation to medical appointments and dialysis safely and on time, as well as to grocery stores and other local destinations that are necessary for social connections outside the home.
The drivers escort and/or assist clients from their home to the appointment and back. Clients receiving the service are able to walk independently or with the assistance of a cane or walker. A donation of $10 per ride is offered by the passenger to the driver.
What distinguishes Wheels is quality, reliability and personal attention. In addition, by ensuring that clients appear for their follow-up medical appointments, Wheels helps to avert hospital re-admissions.
