TALLAHASSEE, FL. (WTXL) -- Elder Care Services is now offering local elderly more transportation options.

For the last year, Elder Care Services has been partnered with Local Senior Discounts, a website dedicated to the resources and discounts for seniors. With this partnership, Elder Care Services was able to get more help with Meals on Wheels.

Since this was such a successful partnership, the two organizations are adding Yellow Cab of Tallahassee to the mix. This new partnership will offer elders the transportation they need to get to the grocery store or medical appointments they otherwise would have missed.

After approval, seniors can make a reservation in advance by contacting Elder Care Services at (850) 245-5907 during normal business hours.

"The elder care community is growing exponentially; over 10,000 seniors turn 65 every day," says Lew Wilson, the President of Local Senior Discounts. "The need just grows and grows. Anything we can do to support their efforts to get out and get around and stay active and to help them with their health efforts is a beautiful thing."

Elder Care Services and Local Senior Discounts hope this partnership with Yellow Cab of Tallahassee will last for quite a long time.
