At Aging Services for Communities our Transportation Services are provided to individuals living independently who are unable to drive and are in need of transport to and from medical appointments. Our transportation program is available to all residents of Le Sueur County who are on Medical Assistance or over age 55. Our various Transportation Services include:
Medical appointments can be anywhere within Minnesota. Clients must be able to get in and out of the vehicle on their own; if the individual is not able to, they should contact the Senior Linkage Line at 1-800-333-2433 for van service. Medical Assistance client rides may be free, contact us at ASC to find out how.
At Aging Services for Communities we also offer transportation and companionship to anyone going to non-medical appointments. In these instances a trained and qualified person will accompany you to your appointments for a fee.
If you are over age 55, not on medical assistance, and live in Le Sueur County we have trained volunteer drivers to take you to scheduled medical appointments. You will make a donation to ASC for the transport.
At Aging Services for Communities we understand that not all individuals like to drive or have the means to drive. We also recognize that many people falling into these categories do not have or do not qualify for medical assistance. For these individuals we offer private pay transportation services, which are setup at 75¢ per mile plus a $10.00 per transport admin fee.
"My name is Don Reak, I am the son of Bessie Reak, who is using the Transportation Services of Aging Services for Communities. My Mom's family and Mom are very happy that there is a service like this in our community. My Mom goes to Shakopee three (3) times a week for kidney dialysis. The Drivers are always on time and very helpful to Mom. This is a wonderful service for our community and it helps so many people. The staff at Aging Services for Communities are always helpful and very professional and our family would like to say thank you to all of them for all their help."
