Wheels for Wellness

To successfully build, promote, and provide a quality service for the patients of Vancouver Island who require transportation to their medical appointments. To provide safe, friendly on time service to appointments from your home (or from the ferry terminal). To provide "Door to Door" service.

The Wheels for Wellness Society was formed in Comox by the owner of Designated Drivers in 1997. The purpose is to provide transportation to centralized medical appointments for those requiring it.

The Society depends on your donations to maintain the long term viability of this service. We will take Social Services and First Nations Health Authority clients, although will require the mileage allowance given by these agencies be paid to your driver. With confirmation from those departments, we can invoice.

YOUR DRIVER MAY ACCEPT DONATIONS TO THE SOCIETY. The Society will pick you up at your home, take you where you need to go, wait for you and return you to your home. The exceptions are: If you live in Tahsis, Zeballos, or any other off main road community you will be given a designated pickup and drop-off spot by the dispatcher.

We will take you to any out of town MEDICAL appointment, for example Victoria, Nanaimo, Campbell River that exceeds 60 KM (one way) from your point of departure.

Your volunteer driver will be a polite and courteous individual with excellent driving skills and knowledge of routes to your appointment. Drivers are 'Professionals', have criminal records checks, and a 10 year clean driving record.

If you are physically handicapped we will need to know well in advance in order to provide an adequate vehicle. This includes the requirement to take a walker.

Wheels for Wellness requires advanced notice in order to book a driver and vehicle. 24 hours is normal.

Wheels for Wellness Society is fully insured.
