Medical Escorts for Seniors


  • WHERE
    Toronto, ON

DESCRIPTION

We are seeking friendly, patient and caring individuals to accompany seniors to their medical appointments.

The program runs Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and you may perform the service on days and times at which you are available. The coordinator will let you know about appointments for which escorts are requested and, if you are available, details will be shared.

Public transportation or Wheel Trans will be used to travel to the appointment - there is no need for a personal vehicle and the purpose of this role is to help the senior get to and from the appointment, not to act as an adviser regarding medical issues.

TTC tokens will be provided for travel to and from the client's home.

Background Screening:

Please note that a Vulnerable Sector Screening is required for this role prior to working with clients.  WoodGreen will process this for you if you do not have a VSS that has been issued within 12 months from the date of interview.  Depending on your address, there may be a charge for this service as levied by your police jurisdiction. 

If you are interested in this role, please contact WoodGreen's Volunteer Services department and a member of the team will be in touch shortly.

Email volunteer@woodgreen.org or call 416.645.6000 ext.1157

Thank you for making a difference in your community!
