I would like to tell you about a Senior Citizen and her challenges...We met Karen a little over a year ago, she lives outside the city of Grand Rapids on what she calls the farm. She can no longer drive after a major accident but still wants to live in her home. To continue living at home she needs the ability to get herself to and from appointments, go to the grocery store and run other errands like getting her prescriptions. She needs to be able to get to and from the doctor's office, and finally, she needs to be able to participate in quality of life activities such as worship or going to a family get-together. So how do we keep seniors who don't want to move into a retirement facility or don't have the financial means to move into a retirement facility living in their homes. How do we as a society support them when they don't have transportation options that work for them...
