‘A society for all ages is multigenerational. It is not fragmented, with youths, adults and older persons going their separate ways. Rather, it is age-inclusive, with different generations recognizing — and acting upon — their commonality of interest.’ – Kofi Annan, Secretary General of the United Nations
Personal mobility, the ability to travel from place to place, is an important component of independence and full participation in society. Adequacy of mobility directly impacts a senior’s independence and quality of life. Mobility represents self-sufficiency and engagement for older people. The maintenance of an older person’s independence is reliant in part on access to the goods and services and social contacts necessary to a good quality of life.
Lifestyle Helping Hands Seniors Association is a registered, non-profit society whose purpose is to assist seniors residing in Edmonton to maintain an independent lifestyle that enables them to remain in their own homes for as long as possible. We do this by providing seniors with a Senior Assisted Transportation Program through Drive Happiness™.
Our mission is to provide adequate transportation to help maintain the mobility, independence and overall well-being of Edmonton seniors.
