It is comforting to know that I have a backup system when I cannot be with my mother.

“Thank you for all that you do to assure that my mother can live in her home independently.  It is comforting to know that I have a backup system when I cannot be with my mother.”

Why Our Work Matters

Volunteers from Interfaith Caregivers help seniors get to the places they need to go. The following facts underscore the significance of our work:

  • More than half of all non-drivers 65 and over do not leave their homes on any given day because they do not have transportation.
  • According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, next to health, transportation is the most concerning issue for seniors.
  • AARP says that 88 percent of seniors want to stay in their own homes as long as they can, but more than 20 percent of seniors do not drive at all, reducing their ability to remain independent.
  • Without transportation, seniors face diminished physical and mental health. Seniors who do not drive make 15% fewer trips to the doctor, 59% fewer trips to the grocery store and 65% fewer trips to visit friends and family.
  • Seniors who have transportation options are more likely to have regular contact with friends, family and community members, which reduces their feelings of isolation and loneliness.
