Lymington Care Group is a voluntary organisation with charitable status. We drive people to their medical appointments with doctors, chiropodists etc, and to any hospital they need to go to. We stay with them and help in any way we can especially at hospitals which can be very confusing. We feel that by staying with our clients it helps to take some of the anxiety away as hospitals can be frightening places.
Some of our drivers can accommodate wheelchairs and clients are very welcome to take a relative or friend with them. Our charges to cover car expenses are paid to the driver.
How we do it
Since 2019 we have given up our office and it’s volunteers. Instead we now use an answerphone to record requests for transport. These are picked up daily by a volunteer co-ordinator who arranges the journeys with our volunteer drivers.
