I love being a driver for Life Eldercare's VIP Rides Program. II started volunteering after I lost my job in 2011 and had time to help out. It is so important for our elders to maintain as much independence as possible so they don't feel a burden to their family. VIP rides provides this opportunity. My clients are all positive role models for me. When I work with a 95 year old lady who still takes the time to get manicures, has her hair well coiffed, applies makeup while being vital and cheerful, I can't help but be inspired. This is what I want to be in my older age! They all have such interesting stories if we take the time to ask. I know they are appreciative of this service. They tell me so every time I drop them off. The coordinators of this organization are very mindful of the needs of the volunteers. They are always positive and helpful when asking for our time.
