Partners In Care Is Supported By the United Fund of Talbot County

Partners In Care is a 501(c)3 community nonprofit providing supportive services to help older adults in Talbot County remain independent in their own homes. We operate an innovative time-exchange program which engages people to use their time and talents to help each other accomplish the tasks of everyday living. Everyone has something to con-tribute, and anyone who helps out will get help back from the community when they need it. We are neighbor helping neighbor.

We are thankful to the United Fund of Talbot County for funds to support our Ride Partners transportation program. Last year our volunteer drivers logged over 24,000 miles and made nearly 1,000 trips driving people to medical ap-pointments grocery stores, pharmacies, and errands throughout Talbot County. The need is growing as the number of older adults in the county increases and the services to support them decrease.

We always need more volunteer drivers and hope you will get involved. It’s flexible and fun. Volunteers use their own vehicles and are covered under our volunteer insurance. There are no assigned rides; you drive in the areas of Talbot County that you want to, when you want to. You’ll meet new people and make friends. If you’re not interested in driv-ing, you can help in the office or give a donation to fund our programs.

We hope you will join us to support the growing number of older adults among us who need our services, as transpor-tation is critical to aging well in the community. Become a volunteer member of Partners In Care. In exchange for help-ing others, you’ll earn credit in the bank for the time when you might need a hand with something.
