Senior Wheels and Transportation Services
Easy and affordable transportation.
Transportation is a large obstacle for seniors wishing to be independent. Without groceries, rides to medical appointments, or the ability to attend a local event, seniors are less likely to be able to remain in their home.
Senior Wheels is a volunteer supported program that provides rides to and from medical, dental and essential well-being appointments for adults age 60 and older medical, dental and essential well-being appointments.
Other transportation services includes running errands such as prescription refills, shopping, paying bills, or other non medical needs.
