Senior transportation options to be discussed

“Elder Mobility: New Solutions for Ohio Communities,” a program on transportation options for the elderly, will be presented from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. today at the Hancock County Agency on Aging’s Senior Center, 339 E. Melrose Ave.
Those attending will learn about programs to help elders sharpen their skills, change their driving habits or decide to stop driving; strategies to use existing community transportation resources more efficiently; and new models to expand transportation capacity.
Katherine Freund, president and founder of ITNAmerica, an independent transportation network, will speak, and there will be a panel discussion on the topic of senior mobility.
The program is sponsored by Area Agency on Aging 3 and United Way of Hancock County, the Ohio Departments of Aging, Transportation and Public Safety and the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
