AT St. Luke's Hospital 5819 Monclova Road Maumee, OH 43537 (Directions) (Room Location)
Allguardians will be assigned to
the veterans by Honor Flight Northwest Ohio.
Anyone that meets the following qualifications may apply. There is no guarantee on selection or flight. Family member guardians will also fall under this requirement.
All Honor Flight Guardians must be in good health, be able to lift 50 lbs, be able to transfer veterans in and out of wheelchairs, push/pull and lift a wheelchair throughout the day, and walk long distances while pushing a wheelchair. They must also be able to bend over to tie shoes or pick up items for veterans. In addition, you must be able to multi-task in order to assist two veterans, if ask to do so. Honor Flight Northwest Ohio will attempt to match veterans with guardians with comparable height/weights to ensure optimal safety.
A three-hour training session is mandatory prior to the flight. Our guardians must be responsible, respectful, kind, considerate, enthusiastic and patient! The minimum age for a guardian is 18 years old. The maximum age for a guardian is 65 years old (inclusive). In other words, once a person reaches his/her 66th birthday, he/she is no longer eligible to be a guardian. Sorry, no exceptions to this policy. Honor Flight Northwest Ohio reserves the right to refuse any guardian application for any reason.
Guardians pay their own way for this opportunity and receive the same accommodations as the Veteran. The $300.00 fee is a small price to pay to share in the joy and friendship that our veterans so deserve on their journey. This covers training and peripheral costs. Any flight costs are paid by the hub itself. IMPORTANT: Guardian Fees are payable by cash, check or money order the day of training. DO NOT send guardian fees in with your application.
