Access to medical appointments, pharmacies, good food, and social engagements requires access that in rural regions is dependent on one’s ability to continue to drive or rely on non-profits and volunteers. It takes imagination, creativity and dedication to maximize our local options.

Goal #1: Increase the number of available volunteer drivers in the pool for RSVP – especially for Freedom, Ossipee, Tamworth, Eaton and Madison and for longer distance rides. http://www.carrollcountyrsvp.org/non-emergency-medical-transportation1.html
Goal #2: Develop a vehicle inspection and repair program for low-income workers using CDC Federal grant funds. Seniors who are still working or returning to work will benefit.
Goal #3: Develop town by town listening sessions to learn about preferences and needs of seniors for transportation options. Include Tri-County CAP, RSVP, and Gibson Center and encourage more volunteer drivers to help neighbors.
Goal #4: Update and distribute the Transportation Resource Guide.
