Lifeguard Ambulance Service is offering its annual Christmas “Home for the Holidays” service on Christmas Day.
This complimentary ambulance transportation service provides local residents living in skilled nursing facilities with an opportunity to spend the holidays with their families. Often times, these residents are unable to sit in a personal vehicle; therefore, a lack of specialized transportation separates them from their families on Christmas Day.
“The holiday season is not about fancy gifts or big feasts," said Mark Melville, operations manager. "It’s a chance to enjoy time with your family and friends through laughter, conversation, and reminiscing about old times. It’s a blessing to our team members to help a family spend the day with the ones they love, and we are honored to give this gift back to the community.”
Home for the Holidays is offered on a space available basis between the hours of 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Participants must be medically self-supporting while at the residence and will be left in the care of a responsible family member. Lifeguard currently has one transport scheduled for this holiday season.
