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.
Our benefit specialist is a person trained to help older people who are having a problem with their private or government benefits. Benefit Specialists are often called “Red Tape Cutters” because they are experts at helping older people with the extensive and complicated paperwork that is often required in benefit programs.
They help older persons figure out what benefits they are entitled to and tell them what they must do to receive them. Benefit specialists are continually trained and monitored by attorneys knowledgeable in elderly law.
