Two speakers, Shirley Kalyniuk (Rossburn) and Samantha Rodeck ( Ile des Chenes) discuss the importance of affordable , available and accessible transportation for older adults to their health, well being , and to the basic dignity of being an active member in their community. The need to plan ahead for those future times when one may not be able to drive, the sense of dignity that comes from a certain degree of independence and the need to consider transportation options for people and the importance of taking the time to care now.
