 EUGENE, Ore. – The Senior Connections Rural Medical Escort Program, a program offered by Senior & Disability Services, a division of the Lane Council of Governments (LCOG), needs volunteers to provide rides for local homebound seniors to their medical appointments. This program helps promote independent living for older members of our community.

  • Mileage reimbursement offered.
  • Flexible daytime schedule.
  • We prefer volunteers to be available five (5) or more hours a week.
  • There are no rides on weekends, holidays, or evenings scheduled.
  • All rides are scheduled through the Senior Connections office.
  • Volunteer drivers must have a valid driver’s license and vehicle insurance, and they must pass a criminal background check.
