Valuable programs

Stratford Gazette

I was impacted by the Letter to the Editor, Angels amongst us, in the Gazette Sept. 27, and wanted to give thanks also.

There are many valuable programs in Stratford, but two in particular I would like to comment on.

For some time I have wished to congratulate the Mobility Bus drivers of Stratford. These people and this service are invaluable to my husband and me. My husband has mobility challenges.

The VON Day Program my husband attends is absolutely essential to maintaining what limited mobility he has and to allow for interaction with others besides myself, and as a full-time caregiver, give me some respite. The VON staff is remarkable! I cannot praise them and the Day Program enough!

However, without the Mobility Bus, the Day Program would not be accessible to us. And the compassion, cheerfulness and reliability of the Mobility Bus drivers make my life as a caregiver lightened considerably.

So drivers, when you see the Mobility Bus, smile and realize they make a huge difference to many. Thank you VON and Stratford Mobility.
