Senior Transportation Services
Senior Transportation Services
At Safe Drivers, we recognize the importance of supporting our senior community in British Columbia. Although there are a variety of transportation options available for seniors living in the community, nothing feels quite as good as traveling independently. As such, our local organizations offer safe and secure senior transportation services so that seniors are able to travel and pursue their daily activities on their own time, in their own vehicle. Whether it's medical appointments, family visits, or just a desire to walk in the park, our senior transportation services allow all people to continue to live independently, even into old age.
Public transit can be unsafe, unhygienic, and not always friendly to older adults. Waiting for a family member, friend, or caregiver to drive you can feel disempowering. Taxis can be expensive and allusive. Luckily, our senior transportation program in Vancouver allows seniors to continue to drive safely and on their own time.
Although receiving a ride from friends and caregivers can be a wonderful experience, too, sometimes it's nice to be able to do what you want, when you want. We believe being able to navigate your world independently well into old age is key to living a long and happy life.
If you have an elder in your life that you think could benefit from our assistance, feel free to pass along our phone number, we'd be happy to hop on a call!
If an older adult in your life is looking to be vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccination and is looking for assistance and transportation options, we have resources available. The health of our elders is of top priority and we offer safe and accessible options rides for seniors to medical appointments to and from their appointments.
