HHOVV in collaboration with James Seastrand Helping Hands of North Las Vegas offers rides to seniors age 60 and over.
Rides are provided with wheelchair capable vehicles and with qualified volunteers. Rides are provided for medical appointments, grocery store shopping and other errands. We also have several volunteer drivers who provide transportation in their own vehicles for seniors to and from medical appointments, shopping trips and errands. All volunteers receive orientation training and a background check.
New clients meet with HHOVV’s intake coordinator for an assessment and must be 60 years of age or older, show proof of Nevada residency and display a need for assistance. Individuals needing services are typically alone and frail, chronically ill, homebound, and/or dependent on a primary caregiver. Reassessments are completed on an annual basis. Services are free for low income clients and a nominal fee is requested (less than $5/ride) for those with the means to pay. Volunteers and staff do not accept tips, gifts, fees, loans or anything of value from clients.
