Hi Alan and Michele,

It is a great little business and I know from some of their clients that the response and and service has been great, we think that many business would do very well if they paid more attention to the needs and requirments of seniors and those with limited mobility....

Hi Ralph,

thanks for the feedback and kind support, it is a service that is very much filling a void in our local market, although we have some services that a bit generic like HandiDart which is run by the regional transportation service, and there are a few taxi'e that will assist a little ,

Driving Miss Daisy is much more than just a people mover, they look after their clients before, during and after the trip.

That seems like a business that has the potential to grow as the population ages Peter and Linda. Many seniors really do need an extra hand ast carrying out some of those tasks from time to time.

Hi Malcolm,

You are absolutely correct, one added aspect to much of our experience, with working with many elderly is the need and benefits for a little companionship which is part of the success story with Driving Miss Daisy, taking the extra time and effort to ensure people are looked after properly
