Community Rideshare works for YOUNG & OLD
Did you know that there are around 1065 people in The Hills who deal with isolation, uncertainty and hopelessness every day of their lives?
Imagine how you would feel if one of them was your grandparent!
Community transportation services don’t take seniors across town, or anywhere on weekends or at night.
Seniors are required to give plenty of notice to book a trip, which means they often miss out on the spontaneity that life demands, and the simplest flexibility and freedom that so many of us take for granted.
In 2008, John McQuarrie, a long-time Sydney Hills resident, saw the plight of local seniors as he volunteered to drive them to their medical appointments, grocery shopping and cemetery visits, when no one else would.
“Countless seniors find it impossible to visit old friends, places and activities they did before they were deprived of their access to a car. And yet society urges them to “age in place” – a sentiment that they sadly resign to. It doesn’t have to be that way!” – John McQuarrie
