Quote from the podcast episode:
"By giving the seniors the ability to make their own medical appointments and the arrangements to get there, we're giving them back a measure of independence and they're excited to have it. They make friends with the drivers...the drivers are dedicated, wonderful people and we couldn't do it without them." - Karen Courney
