TRANSPORTATION - The #1 need!! Individual escorted rides to and from your regular medical, dental, vision, lab, and vaccine appointments. We stay with the client. No surgeries, please.
GROCERY SHOPPING - Shopper will get your list and do the shopping for you; then deliver your groceries.
FOOD PANTRY DELIVERIES - We'll arrange to pick up your free items.
TELEPHONE REASSURANCE - A volunteer will call you on a regular basis and offer support and socialization.
HANDY HELPER - If you get rides, then you qualify for a "Handy Helper" to help with things you may no longer be able to do. Ex: hang pictures, change sheets, clean out a closet.
SOCIALIZATION EVENT - NESA hosts a Fall Fest every November. We pick up clients and return them after the festivities.
SENIOR SANTA DELIVERIES - Each December, through donations, we deliver gifts to low-income older adults. Sometimes, our gifts are the only ones they receive at Christmas.
INFORMATION/REFERRAL SERVICES - If we can't help you, we'll refer you to someone who can.
NESA's annual Fall Fest was a success!

"NESA is a Godsend. You have provided me with more than excellent service in getting me to my doctors' appointments. The volunteer drivers are most courteous and patient, and they make good company during the trips...great conversations!" R.N.
"Without NESA, I don't know what I'd do. You've been a lifesaver for me in so many ways." G.L.
"I greatly admire your dedication and work to ease senior citizens' lives like myself." P. P.
"I know I owe you a lot. You have literally kept me alive." J.A.
"Your drivers have big smiles and good hearts." S.L.
"NESA drivers share my life with me. They are with me when it's cold, rainy, or if an appointment runs long. They are very patient. They open doors for you, and sit and chat to ease your mind. This type of care is hard to find because people are so busy with their own lives. I'm thankful for NESA." L.C.
"It's enabled me to have more freedom and a sense that I can still do things by myself with some help, and you've given me the help I need to do that." G.L.
