Meals On Wheels Drivers
This volunteer opportunity is perfect for those who enjoy being active and away from a desk. Devote 1 to 2 hours once per week delivering hot lunchtime meals to homebound senior clients - OR – substitute as needed as you are available. Clients appreciate the hot meal and find comfort in knowing someone checks in on them.
Do you like to shop? Make the difference in the life of one senior on a regular basis by doing their grocery shopping. Our volunteer grocery shoppers go to the store for their assigned client two times per month. Seniors appreciate the help and enjoy the extra socialization that comes with the shopping trips.

Ohio Senior Health Insurance & Information Program (OSHIIP) Volunteers:
Do you have a love of learning? The Medicare system is very complex, ever-changing, and often confusing for many seniors. New OSHIIP volunteers learn the "ins-and-outs" of the Medicare system each spring during a 20-hour training given by an Ohio Department of Insurance trainer at our Mentor office. Trained OSHIIP volunteers counsel Medicare beneficiaries via the telephone and/or in person visits. It's a wonderful education and an invaluable service to our seniors. Optional mileage reimbursement is available.
