Senior Nation: A Working Model for Senior Transportation with Pam O’Brien


After hearing about the Partners in Care project based in Easton, one might wonder why the organization simply didn’t call themselves “Partners in Cars,” since the lion’s share of their work is coordinating rides between those Mid-Shore neighbours and those nearby who need rides to doctor visits, the local drug store, or some food shopping.

But as Pam O’Brien, who coordinates Partners in Care on the Eastern Shore notes, the organization’s mission is so much more than a friendly and free ride service. In her interview with the Spy, Pam talks about Partners in Care, which was started in 2009 in Talbot County, and the 1,000 plus connections made every year to pair up neighbours for rides and friendship.

This video is approximately five minutes in length. For more information about Partners in Care, please go here or contact Pam at 410-822-1803
