Cost & hassle free pick & drop assistance to the elderly.
'Drive the aged' works in co-ordination with the Senior-Citizens and Volunteers,The elderly in need of a ride can call us on our toll free number and give us the details of their location and their desired destination, we then connect them to the nearest available volunteer and arrange a pick and drop for them.
Drive the Aged, works only with genuine and verified volunteers,the interested candidates can apply with us, Post review of their personal profile we conduct an assessment in order to test their ability to complete tasks assigned to them, If the candidate makes it through we verify their residential address and cross-check to confirm the applicant’s identity, this is all made clear before recognising the candidate as a ‘Drive the Aged’ volunteer !
To ensure easy accessibility for the elderly we have set up a toll-free Number, so even the Senior-Citizens who are not very web-friendly can reach out to us for travel-aid with ease.
Our volunteers are citizens willing to help the elderly by providing them en-route transport to the desired location on their way to work, etc, we follow strict security measures assuring the well being of the elderly as the volunteers are thoroughly assessed and verified when they sign up to 'Drive the Aged'.
We function as a group of willing volunteers who want to rid the elderly of the trouble caused to them for having to drive through city-traffic and also off the hectic modes of public transport, each day!
“I usually have a caretaker who takes me to the doctor for regular checkups, but that day he dint turn up, I was worried and scared, I had to get my next dose of meds. I remembered DTA Arun who volunteers for DTA helped me, He is an angel” -Mr. Suraj Rao (DTA Senior-Citizen)
