Goals/Outcomes:

  • Decrease social isolation

  • Sustain and enhance the independent living capacity

Description:

This service transports seniors to and from the Murtis Taylor Senior Center for meals and activities and it also transports senior consumers to and from senior-oriented community programs/services and community resources. Destinations include grocers, food pantries, farmer's markets, arts and crafts, cultural, recreational, educational, health and wellness, presentations, and field trips. Trips to local resources such as the public library and supportive services such as the Social Security Office are also available.

 

Seniors telephone into the Senior Center during business hours, weekdays from 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. to request transport services. Appointments are made at least 3-5 business days in advance. The Scheduler enters the appointments into the database and develops the Van Driver’s daily schedule.


Seniors once supported by family members for transportation to and from the basic community activities that underpin their independence find themselves shut-in, caused by a spike in economic hardship. This service addresses the erosion of the familial safety-net experienced by many seniors and families.
