  Transportation Services

Transportation is the critical link that assures access to vital services such as health care, social and nutritional services, family and friends, stores and jobs. The availability of transportation allows older adults to live independently in their communities and helps prevent isolation and premature nursing home placement. Unfortunately, many older persons cannot drive because of hearing, vision or mobility losses, health conditions or they do not own an automobile. For these adults, family and friends provide much of the transportation. However, for others, transportation services are the only connection to the outside world.

  Volunteer!
