@DalenaA273712 I'd like to share some information that may be helpful. The Eldercare Locator is a nationwide service that connects older Americans and their caregivers with trustworthy local support resources. You can contact the Eldercare Locator at 1-800-677-1116 to see if they are able to provide you with local resources in your area.
Also, you can search free or reduced cost services with AARP Foundation's Local Assistance Directory to find food, housing, health, employment programs and more in your area. You can get started by visiting our site https://local.aarpfoundation.org/ and entering your zip code. Please don't hesitate to reach out if there is anything further I can do.

Hi @DalenaA273712 I’m in a similar situation. So it depends on where you live & factors like your age….as in if you’re 65 or over…you then should qualify for Medicare. If you have that…then it depends on other things like your insurance benefits. Our state’s Medicare insurance benefits plans can include that type of transportation to get to doctor's appointments….as do some MediGap plans. You might also do an online search your local & state’s government websites…And if your state has a 211 phone helpline, as most do, that would be another source of help. Maybe some of your local churches can help as well.

Hope you have some success soon.…

Take care ~Allen
