TOWN OF LEWISTON SENIOR CAREVAN:

Transportation is provided for residents who would like to attend activities at the center and for medical appointments.   However, donations are greatly appreciated but no Senior will be denied service due to an inability to pay.  The Senior Van is in operation Monday through Friday from 8:30 am—3:00 pm.  Arrangements must be made 24 hours in advance.  Senior Van funding provided by the Town of Lewiston and the Niagara County Office for the Aging.

Who may use the Senior Van: The Senior Van may be used by Seniors 60 years or older, residing in the geographic limits of the Town of Lewiston.  We do NOT have a wheelchair van.  If you require ANY assistance, due to liability restrictions, you must have someone accompany you to provide the required assistance.

Service Priorities: Every van rider is important to us; medical needs will be the first priority for service.  Seniors requiring hospital or doctors care will be scheduled prior to any other need.  In order to accommodate as many people as possible, you may have to be picked up earlier than you think necessary if there is more than one appointment scheduled for the same time.  YOU MAY HAVE TO WAIT TO BE PICKED UP for your trip home.

Due to the increased demand for our Van Service, the Senior Van will provide transportation for Shopping, Banking, and Hair Appointments as van availability allows. Please call the center for more information.  This service is limited to the Village of Lewiston.   

Client Location Conditions: Clients are expected to keep driveways clear of any obstacles (low hanging tree branches, ice/snow, and any other obstruction).  If your location is determined by the driver to be impassable or hazardous, arrangements will be made to pick you up at another location.

Suggested Donations for Van Service:  Travel within the Town of Lewiston will be at the suggested rate of .50 cents per one trip and $1.00 round trip.  Travel outside of the Town of Lewiston will be for the following suggested donation:

Summit Mall Medical    $4.00

Senior Wishes is seeking wish applicants

‚ÄčSenior Wishes, a WNY non-profit founded by the United Church Home Society, strives to fulfill wishes that may have been set aside by older adults.  As vaccinations increase and our communities safely re-open, Senior Wishes is looking forward to re-engaging with qualifying seniors.

A wish can be any meaningful experience the recipient deeply desires.  Past wishes have included visiting museums, celebrations for milestone birthdays, and lessons or supplies to revisit an abandoned hobby.  Sometimes, a senior just needs a small household item to bring them some cheer.

According to Wendy Miller Backman, Executive Director, “Senior Wishes was created to foster respect and appreciation by providing seniors with a life enriching experience to be remembered.  These are people who have spent their lives serving our country, caring for others, volunteering in the community and raising their families.   We want them to know they are not forgotten.”  

Qualifying seniors may submit an application which is reviewed bi-monthly by a volunteer wish granting committee.  After approval, a Senior Wishes representative will work together with the senior to plan the details of their wish.  Community members are encouraged to reach out to deserving seniors, talk to them about their needs/dreams, and help them fill out the paperwork.  

Wish recipients must be 65+ and a resident of Western New York with an annual income under $38,000 for a household of one or under $44,000 for a household of two.  Permanent residents of care facilities are exempt from the income qualification.  

Vacations, medical items, furniture, household repairs, bill payments and travel outside of the continental U.S. are excluded.  

Full details can be found at www.SeniorWishes.org or by calling Wendy at 716-508-2121.
