Tierra Village will provide scheduled transportation for shopping and/or visits to town, and will provide assistance to residents in arranging transportation to/from medical appointments and to/from work. When a care partner is accompanying a resident to an appointment, work or a Tierra Village event, a community vehicle may be used, and the community will cover the cost.
If a resident wishes to participate in a social activity, assistant support and transport may be provided and coordinated subject to availability; otherwise the resident is expected to bear the cost of transportation. Residents wishing to participate independently in events ending late at night are required to pay for the cost of transportation back to the community from their private funds if an assistant is unable to pick them up. We have not had to charge a resident for events since we opened our doors in March of 2014.
Residents are not allowed to drive community vehicles.
