Transport Fix For Elderly – Monash Leader
St John Ambulance Victoria has launched a new Community Transport Service in The City of Monash to ease the challenges residents face when travelling to appointments, errands and events.
With a 30% increase in the number of Monash residents aged 85 and over from 2011 to 2016 and a forecast to grow another 51% by 2026, St John Ambulance selected Monash as a launching pad for the service to cater to the growing need for the elderly to remain mobile and connected with the community.
The City Of Monash has endorsed the Community Transport Service and is pleased to be the cornerstone for the pilot service.
