STC Serves Rose Centers Passengers

STC will provide transportation for seniors attending programs at the Rose Centers for Aging Well, effective Feb. 1, 2017. About 250 senior adults rely upon transportation to participate in congregate meals, social, health and wellness programming Monday through Friday at the following Cleveland and East Cleveland Rose Center locations:
  • Ernest J. Bohn, 1667 Ansel Rd., 216.373.1913
  • Gunning Park, 16700 Puritas Rd., 216.373.1917

  • Paul W. Alandt Lakeshore, 6600 Lakeshore Blvd. 216.373.1915
STC will also provide transportation for special outings for center participants and expects to deliver about 15,000 trips during the year.  Older adults seeking transportation to Rose Centers location should contact their local Rose Center directly to obtain qualifications and details. “STC is pleased to provide access to the quality services the Rose Centers offer,” said Janice Dzigiel, STC executive director. “Our purpose is to be a critical ‘connection-maker’ for seniors who do not drive and need access services like STC to stay active. One third of our passengers rely upon a wheelchair, walker or cane. Not only do our vehicles accommodate them in comfort, our drivers are trained to offer the appropriate customer service and assistance.” The Rose Centers for Aging Well LLC, a subsidiary of the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging, provides meals to homebound seniors and in neighborhood centers and offers social, health and wellness programs to seniors in the community. “When agencies of the Rose Centers’ caliber partner with STC, it validates the quality of reliability of our services,” Dzigiel said.


CLEVELAND – January 18, 2017 – The Senior Transportation Connection (STC) Board of Directors welcomed Mary McNamara to the board at its January 18, 2017 meeting. Mary was sworn in to her position as Director of Aging for the City of Cleveland by Mayor Frank G. Jackson in December. “Mary McNamara is a long time public servant who has worked in the Office of Aging for over eight years,” said Mayor Frank G. Jackson. “Her experience and commitment to seniors and the disabled will serve her and the City well in this new role.” Director McNamara is a licensed social worker who has worked in the department since 2008 as a Project Coordinator and Administrative Manager. As director, she leads a dynamic and passionate team that is committed to making Cleveland more “Age Friendly.” This includes oversight of the department’s home repair and maintenance services, social services, the Aging and Disability Resource Center, safety programs, Age Friendly Initiatives and special events. STC executive director Janice Dzigiel remarked “Mary is experienced, knowledgeable and has great compassion for seniors and the challenges they face. Our board looks forward to her input.” Cleveland seniors make up about 24 percent of STC’s annual trip volume, primarily to access medical care. Janice added “Mary represents an important constituency that relies upon STC to maintain their health.” The resident of Cleveland’s Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood is a board member for Abington Arms University Circle Housing and Amani Children’s Foundation; a committee member for the Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging (WRAAA). She earned her undergraduate degree in Social Work from The Ohio State University and a Master of Science in Social Administration from the Mandel School of Applied Social Science at Case Western Reserve University.

Thanks to STC, I go to the grocery store every week. I enjoy cooking my family’s favorite dishes.

My mother and I both use STC and we have truly connected with the staff. They treat us exceptionally well.

Without STC, to be perfectly honest, I would really be homebound. I’d be climbing the walls! STC makes my life very appealing.

STC is so helpful to me. Thank you a million times over!!!
