Dad can’t drive (uses a walker) and mom shouldn’t drive. Anybody use a service like GoGo Grandparent/ Uber / Lyft? Parents aren’t on Medicaid (yet) so free services are not an option I don’t think? They are in south NJ. I did find a local service but it’s $29/hour and I would have to pay it as they don’t have the funds. Thanks

I live in Salem county. The County Office of aging has a Bus. I would think the surrounding counties have the same service. There is a small fee, maybe $3? They are handicapped excessible. They have buses for Dr. Appt and buses for shopping. I have a friend who drives for them. She goes with the riders why they shop and helps them with their packages. Our O of A has a booklet of their services. There is Access thru NJ transit. This costs a little more than a bus and not sure if Mom would be considered disabled in their criteria. Wouldn't hurt to try.

Check to see if the county they live in has community transport. Our’s does and it’s $2 one way for Seniors and the disabled. They will pick us up at our door and bring us home. They have handicap transit as well.
