The Fairport/Perinton Senior Living Council, Inc. (SLC) partners with the Fairport Baptist Homes (FBH) to provide the transportation options offered through Senior Options For Independence (SOFI).
The Elderbus provides door-to-door, wheelchair accessible transportation Monday through Friday within the Fairport/Perinton area for residents who are at least 60 years of age or disabled. Through a partnership with the Fairport Baptist Homes, SLC makes it possible for Fairport/Perinton residents to get to local doctors’ appointments, go to the library, have their hair done, grocery shop, and do their banking while socializing along the way. Scheduling requires at least one day’s notice.
Volunteer Drivers (SOFI)
Transportation outside the Fairport/Perinton area for medical appointments is also available to local seniors. SOFI volunteer drivers, using their own cars, will provide door-to door service to and from the appointment. In most cases, and when necessary, the driver will remain with the senior while at the appointment. Scheduling requires at least a two days’ notice.
