“I can go where I want, when I want—and get door to door service. When I slide into the back seat, I feel free again!”
Steve loved his car—it represented independence. But he knew it just wasn’t safe for him to be out on the road anymore. Public transportation was inconvenient and didn’t always get him where he needed to go. How could he maintain his independence, stay connected to his friends and community, run errands and get to doctor’s appointments? Transportation services provided by the Jewish community got him back out on the road. “I can go where I want, when I want—and get door to door service,” Steve said enthusiastically. “When I slide into the back seat, I feel free again!”
Stay connected to community and manage your daily tasks, from doctor’s appointments to grocery shopping to cultural and social outings. Trained drivers ensure that you are safe while getting on and off buses, into and out of individual cars, and to and from locations. A fleet of vehicles, some equipped with wheelchair lifts, is at your service to provide a comfortable, safe and dependable way to get where you need to go.
Get objective information about whether it’s safe for you to drive. This driving assessment program, conducted by a trained occupational therapist, can help you determine if you can continue to drive or resume driving and offers ways to improve your ability to function behind the wheel. An off-road clinical assessment thoroughly evaluates vision, physical functioning and cognition. Then an in-car assessment, conducted in a dual-equipped vehicle, evaluates safety behind the wheel, including stopping and starting, following directions, turning, parking and highway driving. Each assessment takes one-and-a-half to two hours to complete.
