Since opening on the North Shore in 2008, Driving Miss Daisy has become a valued provider of assistance and mobility services for an increasing number of seniors, families with children, and for people with special needs. We extend our services to people with vision, cognition and mobility challenges as well as people recovering after surgery.
Driving Miss Daisy mobility service is a certified Veteran's Service Provider. Team members are carefully screened, carry liability insurance and have CPR and first aid training. The fleet of vehicles includes clean, comfortable and easily accessed PT Cruisers, Kia Rondo that can accommodate fold-up wheelchairs and walkers and a wheelchair-accessible van Dodge Grand Caravan. All vehicles are equipped with umbrellas, snow tires, chains, snow brushes and first aid kits so they're ready for changing weather conditions.
And, with winter on the way, mobility services are becoming more important than ever.
"In winter we provide all the same services as we do year round," says Driving Miss Daisy's Marina Kuznetsov. "However, due to slippery conditions and additional mobility issues people can experience at this time, we make sure to give our clients more assistance and extra time to get to their destinations."
The team at Driving Miss Daisy also makes sure they have enough drivers for special times during the year and require only 24 hours advance notice for booking a ride.
"A lot of seniors experience isolation from society and the outside world.
The services we provide help seniors continue to be a part of society, especially important during the holiday season.
"We have had many compliments from our clients and non-clients alike, declaring that we provide a very well needed service. Clients and members of Driving Miss Daisy team are like a big family."
"Our vision is to preserve independence and prevent social isolation. Our mandate is to be fiercely loyal and dedicated to our clients. Our mission is to be the eyes for those with compromised vision, the feet for those with limited mobility and a helping hand to support as needed".
It all adds up to an award-winning service that provides a worry-free way to help people stay active, involved and connected.
