Challenges and Opportunities in Transportation in Adult Day Services
Transportation is a critical component for many Adult Day Services centers – whether you provide transportation or need to find transportation services for your attendees. Join us for this informative session on how to garner the resources and funding to create or expand your transportation service or how to partner with others in the community to meet your client’s transportation needs. You will also learn about the resources and assistance available from the National Aging & Disability Transportation Center and other national transportation centers.
