Transportation

Coulee Family Services offers wheelchair accessible transportation for individuals and families in southern Alberta as well as our own home care clients. We will transport you and/or your family member to where you need to go, whether to the grocery store or a doctor’s appointment in Calgary. While we cater to those requiring wheelchair access, our service is available to anyone that would benefit from fully accompanied service. Our service goes beyond “door to door” and supports the client wherever they need to go in an out of the vehicle – a caregiver service and transportation service – in one.

Testimonials

“Our special out of town event was made even more memorable with the assistance of Coulee Family Services.  Their caring and professional transportation service allowed our aged parents with limited mobility to attend our milestone celebration. 5 stars to Stan and his team for safely bringing and returning our loved ones on that day!”

Deb R., Lethbridge

“Coulee Family Services has helped my mother on a number of occasions. From the very first time I spoke with them up until the last they have always been highly professional but also incredibly personable and kind. They are all so very sweet right from booking the appointment and then to the actual transportation. What was most important to me was having my mom safe and happy and on time with her appointments. She would always come back very happy and always made comments about how nice the drivers were. She was over the moon to have the driver turn some Christmas tunes on for her and let her sing away. It’s one thing to be professional, but then to be so kind and genuine especially for vulnerable people, I’d say I couldn’t ask for any better. Thank you Coulee Family Services for your kindness, your quick responses and availability, and your ability to keep one of the most important people to me, happy and safe! We will not hesitate to continue to use your services.” 

Amanda N., Lethbridge

“My brother is 94 years old and immobile.  I had to take him to Lethbridge Hospital from Taber for some tests and radiation.  I was so grateful to Coulee Family Services that they had a wheel chair accessible van to take him and bring him back. They waited until he was done to bring him back. If I couldn’t have gone they would have stayed with him and wrote notes from the doctors to bring back. As I live in Calgary all these services were such a comfort to both me and my brother. Stan and his drivers were very helpful, kind and patient. All this at a reasonable price.  Thank you Coulee.”
