Envoy America makes it possible for seniors and the infirm to be part of the community during the Jewish High Holidays of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur

Envoy America, the first national ridesharing service for seniors and the infirm, announced today the Better B’Yachad (“Better Together”) Partnerships for the High Holidays program, providing transportation solutions to those in need, so that synagogues will have ALL their members there to pray as one, Better Together.

The Jewish High Holidays of Rosh Hashana, (Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) are just a few days away, while they are days of inspiration for many, they can be days of isolation for seniors and the infirm, as transportation challenges prevent them from being part of the community.

Envoy America is partnering with synagogues to provide transportation for seniors who need a little more help, so they can truly feel like a part of the community at the time of year where the theme of community is most important. Envoy America provides transportation PLUS assistance and companionship, for seniors and the infirm, allowing clients to stay independent, healthy and socially active – all without getting behind the wheel of a car.

Envoy America provides “door through door” service, going to the door to help congregants to the car, storing their walker or wheelchair if necessary, and escorting them into synagogue, not simply leaving them at the curb. After the Holidays, Envoy America's Driver companions can provide a helping hand for doctors’ appointments, grocery shopping, social outings and more.

The level of care is of the utmost importance, Driver Companions are carefully recruited and go through extensive training on the specific needs of seniors and the infirm. Envoy America has received numerous accolades and awards, and are the FIRST AND ONLY RIDESHARING COMPANY to receive the distinctive Dementia SMART® Award from the Dementia Society of America® for excellence in its proprietary Driver Companion training.

Rabbi Moshe Bellows, JD, LMSW, LNHA, Envoy America’s co-founder, opines, “Envoy America has had a blessed year. We have grown to 6 states, 12 major and 68 other cities. We are deeply thankful to the faith-based communities that have embraced Envoy America’s services. We are happy to play a part in helping seniors and the infirm join their community in the most impactful days of the year.”

Rabbi Levi Levertov added “Our community is very fortunate to have Envoy America and their partnership with the Jewish Federation. They have truly changed the landscape of Arizona for our valley's seniors. When a senior calls us wanting to attend an event but have no transportation means, Envoy America is there to help. Our events benefit tremendously from Envoy America as many seniors use their services for transportation to attend.”

The response to Envoy America’s High Holiday promotion has been stellar. We encourage Rabbis, Senior Program Directors and Activities Coordinators to reach out quickly as we continue to experience great interest.
