MEDICAL CAR AND SENIOR BUS SERVICES

Curbside service available to seniors and disabled Stafford residents

 

MEDICAL TRANSPORTATION

 

Our medical car is available for appointments on Monday through Thursday.  Our driver/attendant will pick up the client at their private residence and transport them to their medical appointments.  Riders must be able to get into and out of their homes and the car on their own.  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. 

 

MEDICAL TRANSPORTATION TO HARTFORD AREA HOSPITALS AND UCONN MEDICAL CENTER

 

The town offers rides on a first come, first served basis to appointments at hospitals in Hartford or the UCONN Medical Center in Farmington on the last Wednesday of each month.  Riders are likely to be sharing the car with another person, and should expect to be out for the day as there are different appointment times.

 

SENIOR BUS TRANSPORTATION

 

We offer a ride to the Senior Center for Congregate meals on Monday, Wednesday and most Thursdays and Fridays. 

 

On Tuesdays we offer in town shopping.  Our driver/attendant picks shoppers up at their homes, and they have the opportunity to do specific 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. 

 

There are also sometimes out of town trips to restaurants or larger shopping centers on a Thursday or Friday.  Detailed information about each month's activity schedule can be found in that month's Sage Page.

 

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.
