Barb Nieland gets an occasional hand from "Errand Buddy' and in return gives the service from Elderbridge Alliance an A+++ rating. "It's a great service. It gets people out into the community," says Barb.
Because of limited mobility, Barb sometimes reaches out to Elderbridge Alliance staff for assistance. Thomasina Hegg is Barb's main "Errand Buddy" and she says, "I have known Barb for a number of years and sometimes getting transportation to go somewhere can be difficult. This service can provide some freedom for Barb to go where she wants to go and to do so within her own time frame."
