To enable seniors, including those with limited mobility, to remain independent in their homes.
United Way of Northern Ozaukee-Funded Program: Senior Transportation Program
Interfaith Caregivers of Ozaukee County is one of the county’s critical senior services organizations that provide essential continuum-of-care services to seniors, including those with limited mobility, throughout Ozaukee County. ICO’s transportation, volunteer, and community-centered services are designed to enable seniors to age in place, safely and with dignity. We assist our aging neighbors by guarding the physical and mental well-being of frail and elderly seniors as they grapple with the compromising limitations of growing older, guiding direction and resources to families and friends seeking how best to address the situation, and empowering everyone involved to find stable financial ground by providing coordination of transportation and support services to all parties, free of charge, without any income requirements.
