Driving can become more difficult as we age. The loss of a driver's license has a big impact on one's dignity, freedom, and quality of life. Furthermore, the lack of transportation options tailored towards seniors and those with disabilities is an emerging barrier in our communities.
We recognize these challenges faced by our clients. Although we do not offer transportation services, we do, on a case-by-case basis, assist or accompany our clients with outings to social and recreational activities, medical appointments, and dining out. This a small part of our caregiving and companionship focused services as transportation is not our strong suit. Instead, we do our best to refer our clients to services that are dedicated to assisted transportation. Some examples include:
Edmonton Area - Drive Happiness
Calgary Area - Calgary Seniors' Resource Society
