Caring About Seniors
"A Service For All Seasons"
First launched in 1994, transportation services under the Transportation Program now accounts for 80% of the services provided by SSCAS.
The program operates on pre-purchased tickets. (Tickets can be obtained through the office.) A $6 ticket is good for one 1.5 hour round trip ride or portion thereof. Members wishing to schedule rides must book them at least two business days in advance.
Note: Our drivers and vehicles can accommodate personal walkers but not wheelchairs.
SSCAS maintains a list of pre-screened drivers to transport and assist members to their appointments throughout Edmonton. Drivers are basically volunteers who are paid an honorarium for the use of their vehicles.
Interested in becoming a volunteer driver for SSCAS? Call the office at 780-465-0311.
This is SSCAS's first program, launched in 1988. Services available under the Household Service Program include the following:
The cost to members for household service work is a maximum of $15.00 per hour, except housekeeping, for which there is a minimum two hour charge (i.e., $30.00 for two hrs).
SSCAS maintains a database of pre-screened service providers to assist members with personal tasks and household maintenance.
