FISH (Friends in Service Helping) Transportation
*Please note that due to the health crisis, the FISH Medical Rides Program has been suspended until further notice *
Our FISH Transportation Program volunteer drivers provide rides to Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and Arundel residents 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 not trained to handle that type of transport. Drivers prefer morning and early afternoon appointments.
Please review the following FISH program procedures prior to registering a rider. FISH PROGRAM PROCEDURES
Call the Center at 967-8514 to register a rider at least four business days in advance of your appointment. Use this form to register your rider. FISH RIDER REGISTRATION

Elder Elves are a special group of volunteers at the Center who collect gifts to go into festive bags that are delivered to older area residents 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 visit this link. To 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.
Tender Loving Calls
Many older residents live alone and worry about falling or having an accident at home. TLC callers can be arranged to check on the well being of these 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.
