Ashland County Aging Unit
Providing Senior Assistance in Ashland County
Volunteer Drivers for Meals on Wheels & Medical Appointments
We are always looking for Volunteer drivers for our Meals on Wheels Program that deliver meals to individuals that are homebound. Seniors also need drivers for longer distance medical appointments.
The Ashland County Aging Unit, Inc. is a non-profit organization that assists seniors age 60 and over and their families in maintaining health, dignity, independence, and quality of life, by advocating, planning, coordinating, and delivering services and programs. There is an emphasis on meeting the needs of the socially and/or economically disadvantaged.
This allows older adults to sustain a quality of life that promotes longevity with comfort, independence, and maximum control over decisions that affect their lives. Services available include information and referral to appropriate agencies, advocacy, congregate and home-delivered meals, specialized transportation, benefit specialist services, counseling, senior home repair, and caregiver information and support. Although our programs are structured to help people 60 and older, our assistance is available to anyone, especially families, in search of help for an elderly person who is over 60 years old.
Funding for services is provided through grants and allocations from federal, state, city, and county governments, private contributions, participants’ fees and donations, and fundraising events.
Programs funded under the Older American Act do not have set fees but accept donations from participants.
No one is denied service because of an inability to donate.
