New Transportation Partnership is a Win-Win for Windsor/Essex

Clients of the Alzheimer Society of Windsor & Essex County will be seeing the same friendly and helpful faces they always see, but arriving to pick them up in new vehicle thanks to a partnership with CareLink Health Transit. This partnership will help to provide clients with:

  • Better access to rides through improved coordination and scheduling
  • Newer vehicles with improved accessibility features
  • The security of a sustainable program that will be available for years to come

“CareLink has been able to improve to more effectively meet the needs of the community through centralized coordination and more efficient use of resources.” Says Tracey Bailey, CareLink Lead and Executive Director of the Community Support Centre of Essex County.
