The Senior Connection is a nonprofit, volunteer-based organization that provides senior transportation services and other assistance to homebound seniors in Montgomery County, Maryland. Established 19 years ago, The Senior Connection matches the needs of more than 1,000 seniors with a core of about 330 volunteers. Its free, personalized programs save the county’s seniors about $1 million in annual expenses.
Three kinds of services are available through The Senior Connection. For the door-to-door senior transportation services program, volunteers drive seniors to and from medical appointments and other scheduled engagements, and help run weekly or monthly errands. For the grocery shoppers program, volunteers accompany seniors to the store or go to the store for them, and then help put away all groceries upon their return. In partnership with AARP, The Senior Connection also offers a bill paying and paperwork program to assist with managing monthly income, paying bills, and writing checks.
To apply for any or all of these free services, contact The Senior Connection at www.SeniorConnectionMC.org or by calling (301) 962-0820.
