Getting Out and About
Stroke survivors do not need to be home bound. If you are a stroke survivor and unable to drive or use normal public transportation, and you don't have easy access to a car you can still get out and about using public services. Most communities offer transportation services for the disabled.
With this service, many stroke survivors can now enjoy getting out into the community and expand their horizons. You can use these services to go to your appointments, to the library or other destinations.
Contact your local transit authority and ask what services are offered in your community under the American Disabilities Act (ADA).
Each community has a different name for this service. It may be called "Dial-a-Ride", "Paratransit", or some other name. Also be sure to ask about the application process, how to schedule a ride and if there is any cost involved.
