The Center is a resource center for senior residents who need help with transportation, legal issues, Medicare and more.
We need volunteer drivers for our FISH transportation program. Please read on to see how you can help.
FISH (Friends in Service Helping) Transportation
Our FISH Transportation Program volunteer drivers provide rides to Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and Arundel seniors who need to get to medical appointments. Riders may use FISH Transportation when they have no other means (friends, family) of getting to an appointment. We cannot handle repetitive appointments for life sustaining procedures or clients in wheelchairs as our volunteers are mostly elderly and unable to handle that type of transport.
Call 967-8514 five-seven business days in advance of your appointment to make a ride request. Please note drivers prefer morning and early afternoon appointments.
The need is growing and new drivers are welcome. Please call Carol at 967-8514 to learn more. Use this form to investigate all volunteer opportunities at the Center.
Tender Loving Calls
Many seniors live alone and worry about falling or having an accident at home. TLC callers can be arranged to check on the well being of senior residents and ensure they are safe. There is no charge for this service and you do not need to be a member to receive it. Call 967-8514 for more information.
Elder Elves are a special group of volunteers at the Center who collect gifts to go into festive bags that are delivered to area seniors who are alone at the holidays. Gifts are donated by businesses, residents and Center members. Each year more than 50 bags are assembled for distribution. To volunteer, donate, or request a bag call 967-8514.
Every other month a lawyer from Bergen & Parkinson visits the Center to assist members with legal issues. Call 967-8514 to arrange a private visit.
A Southern Maine Agency on Aging consultant meets privately with clients at the Center once a month to discuss Medicare, rent or property tax rebates, senior housing and other programs for older adults and people under age 60 with a disability. Call the Center for more information.
