Senior Service Programs

 

Rides for Seniors Program - New Entry!
Brentwood area senior citizens, 60 years plus, now have a transportation system available to shuttle them to doctor, dentist appointments, and to the grocery store. The "Rides for Seniors Program" has started here in Brentwood and provides a service to seniors who can't drive or afford a cab and live out of the loop of Dial-a-Ride. Trained volunteers provide the manpower for this program that has been very successful county wide! For more information about the program or to arrange to join the program, please call Laurie Beck at (925) 284-6161 for a program eligibility assessment.
