The Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) offer the general public a single entry point for information and assistance on issues affecting older people and people with disabilities regardless of their income. These resource centers are welcoming and convenient places for you and your family to get information and access to a wide variety of services. Services are provided through the telephone, at the resource center or in your own home. Information and assistance at ADRCs is always free and confidential!
The availability of adequate transportation has long been a priority concern among Lafayette County seniors. The Aging Unit offers two transportation programs. The first program is for “Regular Trips” that are scheduled monthly. Regular trips have a set schedule with approximate times for door to door pick up and drop off. These trips offer shopping, nutrition, social gatherings, medical appointments and business purpose opportunities in Dubuque, Iowa, Madison, Monroe and Platteville, Wisconsin. This program is funded through the Department of Transportation, program income and County funds. For this program, donations are voluntary and confidential. For the general public there is a set fee for service.
The second transportation program that we offer is “Charter Trips” for entertainment, socialization and quality of life. These trips are scheduled each month and are advertised in our monthly newsletter the Upper Horizon. The cost for the Charter Trips is based on actual cost of service including all expenses related to providing this service.
Driver Escort Program
Driver Escort is one of two transportation programs offered through the Aging Unit for elderly and disabled of this County.
Our Driver Escort program enlists the aid of volunteer drivers to deliver medical and emergency transportation services. Driver Escort is available to all elderly and disabled citizens who are
unable to drive or transport themselves. Volunteer drivers use their own vehicles and are reimbursed at a rate of at least 50 cents per mile. In 2010 we combined our Driver Escort program with the Human Services’ program to utilize the drivers and to provide more transportation opportunities for the drivers.
