Give a Senior a Lift!

Information about seniors and ridesharing

Wish you had time to give back to the community? Too busy to volunteer? Giving a senior a lift is an easy and fun way to help out your community with a minimal time commitment. There are so many seniors in our community who, because of transportation challenges, have trouble with tasks we take for granted, like getting to a doctor appointment or picking up groceries. By simply offering a ride and a little support, you could make a big difference in the life of a senior. And at the same time, get to know an elder who you might not otherwise have met, share stories with them, maybe even learn about Kootenay life in “the old days”! It’s easy: if you’re planning a day to run errands or have to go to a neighbouring town for an appointment, post it on Rideshare and add a “seniors welcome!” in the comments section of your post. Thanks for taking an interest in supporting our region’s seniors and check out the links below to learn more about special needs some seniors might have.
