About the Activity

Medical escorts are required to accompany seniors (usually wheelchair-bound), for their medical appointments, and aid the mobility of seniors if required. In addition, to offer care, support, and assistance to seniors during the process. Each appointment usually takes an estimated 3-4 hours.

Medical appointments are on an ad-hoc basis, based on seniors' needs. However, we are looking for regular volunteers who are able to commit for 3 months.
