Frequently Asked Questions
Who can join Partners In Care?To receive services from Partners In Care, you must be over the age of 60 and living in one of the counties we serve. All generations are encouraged to volunteer their time and talents.
What is the cost to join the program?PIC is a time exchange community. Our members exchange services with one another; we do not charge for membership or services. Our expectation is that each member will contribute time (volunteer), talent or treasure (money). We gratefully accept monetary donations as well as gently used clothing & household items which are resold in our Upscale Resale Boutique; proceeds from sales support our programs.
How do I get a ride?Ride requests have to be made at least one week in advance. Requests must include date, time, and complete street address. After we receive your request, volunteer matchmakers will “match” you with an available volunteer driver in your area. The driver will pick you up at a mutually agreed upon time, take you to your appointment, pick you up from your appointment and take you home.
