Medical and Senior Bus Services
Available to seniors and disabled Stafford residents
Effective March 8 medical transportation can now be scheduled on Fridays.
Medical transportation - car is available for appointments on Monday through Friday. Our driver/attendant will pick up the client at their home and transport them to their medical appointments. After the appointment, the client is returned home. If the client requires a prescription, we can sometimes fit in a pharmacy stop before returning the client home. Check with the driver; if her schedule permits, it can be done. The driver travels to doctors, hospitals, and clinics in Somers, Enfield, Stafford, Willington, Tolland, Vernon, Willimantic, Rockville, Manchester, and South Windsor. We recommend that as soon as the client is aware of their appointment, they call the office at (860) 684-7752 to book their ride. If the time is already booked with another client, we can suggest another time that may be available.
Bus Transportation - we offer a ride to the Senior Center for Congregate meals on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. On Tuesdays we offer in town shopping. Our driver/attendant picks shoppers up at their homes, and they have the opportunity to do some of their in-town errands on the town bus. In the morning, the bus stops at the downtown post office, the banks, pharmacy, and the BIG Y Plaza. In the afternoon, the bus stops at the post office, banks, pharmacy, and Big Y or Geissler's on alternating weeks. Our driver/attendant is able to assist with putting groceries on and off the bus as well.
Many of our clients enjoy these services because they are no longer able to drive. Others enjoy maintaining their independence by not having to rely on children or relatives for rides to the store. Often times, clients are not comfortable driving in winter weather, but need to get their weekly errands done. This is a free service for Stafford seniors and disabled persons.
In order to participate, simply call 684-7752 for additional information and to schedule your ride.
