More than a car ride
Jim Levin, a retired infectious disease physician, learned about MOM from his daughter, who had volunteered in the past. He was looking for something to do with some of his spare time after retiring last January and started volunteering in the fall as a senior program volunteer driver. In a few cases, he has been able to share his medical expertise, offering insights to seniors heading to doctor appointments to help them better understand their condition or what questions to consider asking.
What keeps you coming back?
The gratitude of the clients you are helping drive to medical appointments, the grocery store or to pick up laundry. I enjoy the conversations we get to have on the way.
What has surprised you about volunteering at MOM?
How well run the operation is and the caring people that work at MOM.
What would you tell a friend who is considering volunteering?
I would tell them that I am happy volunteering for MOM and impressed with the day-to-day operations
