(Santa Barbara, CA) — Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care is proud to partner with another local non-profit organization, Easy Lift Transportation. Like VNHC, Easy Lift Transportation provides a wide variety of
specialized services to the southern Santa Barbara community, including transportation for VNHC patients and families. Passengers use vans for medical appointments, work, school, grocery shopping, and quality of life activities such as church, recreation, and entertainment. It is through Easy Lift that many of our patients- often homebound or elderly (no longer able to drive)- are able to complete the everyday travel and errands.
As our nation’s population ages and those with physical challenges seek to maintain their independence longer, the need for Easy Lift’s service continues to rise. Because transportation provides the independence vital to maintaining quality of life, Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care strongly supports Easy Lift in this shared goal.
“The relationship between VNHC and Easy Lift goes back at least 25 years, if not more,” shared Ernesto Paredes, Easy Lift Transportation Executive Director. “They have always been at the forefront of their industry, serving our community with integrity and finesse. When Rick and I spoke about expanding the relationship between Easy Lift and VNHC, it was a no-brainer. Of course, we want to partner with organizations that are serving our community’s most vulnerable! I see this new partnership as a reinforcement of our work together and an opportunity to create a better community.”
When asked about the inspiration behind VNHC’s contribution, VNHC Foundation Executive Director, Rick Keith said, “This sponsorship is an illustration of the way we all can work together to meet the needs of our community. Non-profit organizations like ourselves and Easy Lift will continue to collaborate in order to provide much-needed services to our community.”
With five new vans on the road, sporting the VNHC logo and brand, Easy Lift will be able to continue providing mobility, dignity, and independence to all South Coast residents in need.
