We operate a handicap-accessible van for non-emergency and assisted transportation to provide rides to:
- Medical Appointments

Non-emergency medical transportation is available Monday through Friday for needs such as those listed above. Seniors are asked to call at least 48 to 72 hours prior to the need for transportation to get on the schedule.
Medical transportation purposes are our # 1 priority. Transportation for other purposes such as light grocery shopping, and running errands may also be available, as long as they do not interrupt the medial transport schedule.

Reliable Transportation Helps Maintain Independence and Dignity
When your loved one receives in-home care outside of a nursing home or institutional setting, it is important to remember that he or she still requires reliable transportation to obtain groceries, visit the doctor, pick up medications, and take care of other essential tasks. Aside from the necessities of life, getting out of the house also helps our clients to maintain a sense of dignity and independence.
Some things that we tend to take for granted, such as being able to select a birthday card and mail it or selecting our own groceries, can significantly improve the life quality of our older family members. The availability of reliable transportation also helps guard against depression, isolation, and declining health.
