DRIVERS TO DOCTORS

 

                             Need a ride to your appointments?

 

Don't have any way of getting to and from medical or other health-related appointments, such as to Life Labs, the dentist, optometrist, registered therapist, or the pharmacy? Drivers to Doctors is providing drives to these appointments on Gabriola and in Nanaimo.

 

Ferry costs for Nanaimo trips are not included. TAP forms will cover most expenses; if you cannot get to the clinic to pick one up, please let us know. If the service is not eligible for a TAP form (such as pick up from a hospital stay or to a dental appointment), the patient must pay for the vehicle and driver as well as themselves.

 

Drivers to Doctors do NOT have priority boarding for the ferry.

 

Patients are required to have had at least two Covid vaccinations, and all drivers have been vaccinated. Masks are requested for both drivers and patients, especially for trips to Nanaimo. If either patient or driver has any COVID-like symptoms the drive will have to be postponed or reassigned.

 

Call Marni Laird ph: 250-713-8018 to request a driver. Please give as much notice as possible to allow time to arrange for your drive.

MEALS ON WHEELS

Do you know of anyone who can benefit from this service?

                         Help!!

We need more drivers, please!

 

We deliver suppers to people Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. We need lots of drivers because we each deliver once every 2nd week. Our times usually start around 4:15 to around 5:30. We try to have drivers deliver near where they live.
