We all know that the Senior Population falls into a higher-risk category during these currently dangerous COVID-19 Coronavirus conditions. Most everyone has had their lives severely affected and it is up to those in the medical industry to help keep the Seniors healthy and protected.
Many Seniors are alone and, in many cases, living in low-income conditions. These individuals do not have direct access to basic necessities and are unable to easily get food, toiletries and medicine. They may also not be able to easily do Telemedicine appointments with their doctor.
We at Ride-Well Wheels are not going to let our local Senior Population suffer. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit community resource organization, we work with local medical and commercial organizations to safeguard and help improve the lives of seniors. Right now we are facing a critical time and must act. Please see program details below and consider making a tax-deductible contribution to help further our mission and assist more Seniors.
Due to excellent work done in our local communities for many years, one of our partners, MedFlorida Medical Centers, has been granted exclusive access to multiple Senior communities throughout Florida. Therefore, we at Ride-Well Wheels, have decided to engage with MedFlorida Medical Centers to create and launch a new Community-based program called the "Basic Necessities Gift Basket Distribution & Telemedicine Community Access Solution".
How This Program Works
MedFlorida Medical Centers (formerly Medical Consultants of Florida) is open and their providers are available to see patients via telemedicine appointments. Unfortunately, many patients are unable to participate in telemedicine appointments. For this reason, we are working together and doing the following:
1. The MedFlorida Patient Service Representatives (PSRs) are visiting all of the local communities where their patients reside
2. Each MedFlorida PSR is visiting each community on a regular basis and is bringing an iPad to setup a private virtual exam room station so that they may conduct individual telemedicine appointments with patients and community residents
3. Each telemedicine appointment will represent a healthier patient population and we believe this is an important solution during a very challenging time
4. Each MedFlorida PSR is also going to distribute special Ride-Well Wheels Basic Necessities Gift Baskets to those patients and residents who come to the centrally located station within each community.
About Each Ride-Well Wheels Basic Necessities Gift Basket
In collaboration with Goya, contents may include the following and the total value of each basket will be between $10 to $14 USD:
- Canned Goods
- Vegetable oil
- Grains (rice, beans etc)

Each gift basket will also include either a brochure and/or a postcard listing the name and logo of the sponsor who is covering the costs of the gift basket.
