Doctor's & Medical Appointment
FISH has been providing MAINE TOWNSHIP residents with transportation to medical
facilities in and near Maine Township since 1971. FISH was created by a group of Maine Township residents who wanted to help
their neighbors and has provided thousands of rides during the program's over 40 years of service. Volunteers drive those
in need to a wide range of medical appointments at no charge. However, donations are accepted and appreciated.
To be eligible to participate in the program, residents need to be mobile
or be able to use a cane or walker. Since most of our drivers are seniors, we are unable to provide rides to people in wheelchairs.
To give us adequate time to coordinate your appointment with a driver, please call at least a week in advance
of your appointment. We will do our best to provide you with a ride.
schedule a ride call MaineStay Officer Manager Austin at 847-297-2510 x283.
FISH is always in need of volunteer drivers. Volunteer
drivers choose how much time they wish to devote. Some drive once a week; others drive more often. Requirements include a
current driver's license and proof of auto insurance. FISH carries supplemental liability insurance as an umbrella policy
for its drivers.
When you volunteer to drive, your rewards are great:
- Satisfaction from helping a neighbor
chats with someone who may be lonely
- Genuine appreciation for
providing a wonderful service
