Why become a Member of Nutmeg Senior Rides in Connecticut?

 

Nutmeg Senior Rides understands the importance of transportation for participation and autonomy in aging. Regardless of age, it is important that our seniors remain an active part of society. That is why their experiences and insights are taken into account to provide the best senior transportation service in Connecticut at affordable prices. Many seniors are limited in their use of transportation by the physical or social environment, so it is necessary to develop adaptive strategies for better performance in the area of senior transportation in Connecticut.

The significance of senior transportation use relates to maintaining autonomy and identity. The transportation system in Connecticut may not fit the needs of the senior population and may be perceived as an element of social exclusion for seniors. Nutmeg Senior Rides wants to provide the best options for seniors transportation in West Suffield CT, Bloomfield CT, South Windsor CT, Somers CT, Enfield CT, Vernon CT, Granby CT, East Granby CT, Suffield CT, Windsor Locks CT, and East Windsor CT.

For occasional trips, the elderly may need to run activities. Many people resort to asking a friend or family member to take the elderly home. However, friends often do not always have the time to help our elderly. Another option is public transportation, but it is often difficult for the elderly to move independently on buses. There is also the option of cabs, although the drivers may not help elderly passengers on the door-to-door trip. That's why senior organizations like Nutmeg Senior Rides have volunteer drivers who make it possible to provide the best transportation service for seniors in Connecticut.

Nutmeg Senior Rides provides senior transportation service in Connecticut via private cars; we have a good reputation, and rides can be arranged in advance. For these reasons, Nutmeg Senior Rides is the best choice for senior transportation service in Connecticut, and accessing a membership brings many benefits for Riders.

 

People with visual impairments

Our program is designed to help people with visual impairment because it is "door-through-door". Over 35% of our customers are vision impaired, and now that we have doubled our customer base, it may be more. 

People with vision impairment need guidance.  Our program goes to their door and guides them to the car.  When we arrive at the destination, we walk them to the office or wherever they go.  When they are ready to come home, we go to meet them and again walk them to the car and then to their home.

Our rides are individual, meaning one person in one car.  This is very important to low vision and blind people because it gives them security. When they are in a vehicle with others, they do not know who is nearby and if they are safe.
