NAVIGATOR TRANSPORTATION MMNT DRIVERS
In alignment with the MISSION: To be the bridge between information, services, and support for people of color.
VISION: To empower and equip people of color to have an optimal quality of life of Melanin Minded LLC.
Melanin Minded LLC will be piloting a dementia capable transportation service to support individuals in the early stages of Alzheimer’s Diseases and Related Dementia / Mild Cognitive Impairment, Older adults, and physical disabilities to continue to be able to get to the places they enjoy. We will be using a ridesharing app called Navigator Transportation under our company Melanin Minded LLC to ensure effective transportation
for seniors with dementia and their caregivers.
Navigator Transportation will help individuals who can no longer drive due to the progression of the disease navigate the community and connect with resources and activities. The Navigator Transportation driver-private contractors will be recruited throughout Milwaukee County and Fort Worth. Training sessions will ensure that the driver-private contractors will provide safe and dementia conscious transportation to
those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, caregivers, and other seniors.
Safety will be accomplished as driver-private contractors will assist the rider from their home to the car.
In addition, driver-private contractors will be asked to then walk riders to a drop-off personnel at their
desired location. This partnership will begin pilot in Milwaukee County with the goal
of serving as a model to be replicated in other States.
