This is so much more than a Driver position. You will be spending one-on-one time with our amazing residents, getting to know them and learn about their lives. Yes, you are responsible for their safe transportation to and from appointments but you are also a companion for the resident. They may be excited to be traveling to where you are taking them so you are able to join in on the fun or they may need a sympathetic ear after getting news at the doctor’s office. To them (and us) you are more than just your title of “Driver.”
