Kaiser Permanente requires this. I am 89 yrs old. The surgery will be in March. My son has died. My daughter works in the Artic Circle. I have outlived friends & other family. I don't know how to comply with Kaiser's requirement. They say I cannot drive myself and cannot take a taxi. They want someone there - I suppose in case I die. Is there a volunteer service in Bakersfield or some other service to help me?
