Bea's Story 84 years old lives in Boca Raton and no longer drives.
Last March, Bea had to face the fact that she didn’t feel safe driving anymore, so she took herself off the road and gave up her car.
“It was very difficult because I don’t have family here to rely on,” she explains. “My children live out of state and I wasn’t sure how I’d get around until I found out about the transportation services through the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County. When I need to go on a doctor’s appointment, to the grocery store or anywhere important, they arrange a ride for me and other seniors in our area.” Bea says the driver picks her up at her doorstep, and brings her back. He helps her in and out of the van and makes sure she feels safe. The service helps her live independently and she says it’s a big comfort for her children to know their mother has reliable transportation by people who they can trust.
“I want to say THANK YOU to all of the donors who contribute. Thank you for caring!” says Bea.
