What Our Clients Say
I am 96 and without the surety of being able to just ring the car scheme – if only for medical reasons – my life would be very damaged.
I am writing on behalf of my mother, Betty Almklev who has recently passed away without this car scheme my mother would not have been able to attend all the various appointments she had, she had nothing but praise for all the office staff and drivers who she always found polite and helpful. From my point of view I would like to thank you all for the work you do and what you done for my mother. Thank you.
I joined the car scheme when my husband became ill, we could not have done without it, for his treatment to clinics & hospitals that is why I carried on using it for my own trips to clinics & hospitals, I really could not manage without it at my age I really need it.
For me it is the personal touch When visiting my late husband in a care home in a remote area. Somedays on visiting hubby I would feel worried, but having a quick chat with the driver before we set off home made me feel better. You would not get that response from a taxi driver, they dont have the time & time means money.
In short without the car scheme, myself, & many elderly or disabled folk would be housebound. We are all appreciative of the help we get from staff & drivers too – at 93 yrs to me its really needed.
During the time I have used the scheme having worked in managing postions in transport in the past I was pleasantly surprised to be met with such plesant staff both efficient & courteous & found such consuation in the wonderful scheme & please accept my thanks.
This on going scheme alleviates the worry and stress of arriving at hospital appointments on time & the return journey. Both clerical staff and drivers have given a excellent service at all times absolutely first class.
As I have no relatives local this takes a lot of worry from me, knowing I will be able to keep medical appointments on time. It is a very welcome service indeed
I would miss the Social Car Scheme as it is my only means of being mobile other than family help. The people who man the phones and the drivers are extremely helpful at all times. Thank you
My husband and I joined the CPC soon after it started in 2008 and have found it to be a really excellent & reliable community service. When Jack became ill with Vascular Dementia and we had to give up the car it was a positive life line for us especially as we had a caravan in Suffolk. Jack is now living in Oakdale Residential Care Home and I try to see him every day so I have to rely on the CPCS and the local taxi service for transport.
