In addition, community-based adult day services and neighborhood programs promote wellness to seniors in the surrounding areas of our communities, expanding traditional services and allowing seniors to age in their place of choice.

SPECIAL NEED                                    Volunteer Drivers Needed

Volunteer drivers are the key to independence and safety for our older neighbors who are no longer able to drive. When you give a ride to a medical appointment, grocery store, or pharmacy, you are helping your neighbors live healthier lives. Volunteer drivers can choose a geographic area, set their own hours and attend a one-time training.

Volunteer drivers will receive supplemental accident and liability coverage, as well as mileage reimbursement. Consider volunteering twice a week or once a month to help seniors in the community remain connected to their neighborhood and the resources they need to live active, purposeful, and fulfilled lives.

For more information contact Jennifer Rougeux, ESLC Volunteer Coordinator, at (585) 546-8400 x3160 or, or complete an ESLC volunteer application at
