Retreat Assistance Network (RAN)

The Retreat Assistance Network (RAN) is a program that was established in 2008 to assist Retreat residents with short-term needs to remain in their homes.

Our concerned Retreat volunteers are willing to provide:

  • Transportation to medical appointments
  • Rides for grocery shopping or Hair appointments
  • Prescription drug, grocery and mail pick-ups
  • Check-in phone calls or personal visits
  • Minimal meal preparation.

For Retreat residents needing more services than RAN can provide, we have a list of references prepared by United Way of Martin County and the Martin County Council on Aging.

The Vial of Life kit from the Red Cross is a significant item available through RAN.  The VIAL of LIFE kit enables our residents to list key medical issues and medications on a special form.  If emergency personnel enter the home, they are alerted by a decal on the refrigerator that this information is available and easily accessible in the resident’s freezer.

If you or someone you know in the Retreat is in need of RAN services, simply contact one of the volunteers listed below.
