Senior help propram riders

One of the most helpful services provided through the Wellness Center for Older Adults is called Project Independence. Many people remember “Plano Senior Rides,” which is now offered by DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) through the DARTRides program.

Project Independence is a volunteer-based ride service for seniors 60+ years who live in Collin County and have been recently released from the hospital. This is a free 6-8 week program provided to qualified people – those without a car or a driver’s license. 

Project Independence is also helpful if you need help:

  • Sweeping floors
  • Emptying the dishwasher
  • Getting to and from a doctor’s appointmentSenior help program

This program is always looking for more volunteers. If you have the time and ability to donate in a meaningful way, consider becoming a member of “Team Project Independence.” Contact Michelle Owen at 972-953-7669.
