Molly’s Angels of Napa Valley
What They Do:
Provide free door-to-door transportation for seniors to medical and dental appointments, pharmacies, banks, and grocery stores. Enable seniors the opportunity to remain in their homes longer, helping to maintain their independence and dignity.
Lives are saved by making sure medical appointments for treatments like chemo, radiation, and dialysis are kept. Without help, many patients wouldn’t go to these vital services, especially out of county.
Though they start by providing transportation, Molly’s Angels does much more. They allow patients to interact with volunteers on a social level, making them feel less isolated. Volunteers also make weekly calls to check on well-being and to relieve loneliness and isolation. They partner with nearly every senior service and health outlet in the county to help seniors maintain their independence.
While conducting “welfare checks” to assess the patient’s physical and mental health, volunteers use a brief screening tool so they can more easily discuss with the client any barriers to patient care.
Downtown Joe’s has offered a free appetizer for every $20 donation to Molly’s Angels through the Give!Guide.
