ADA Legal:

The Gallen Day Center recognizes that disabilities are as diverse as the individuals they serve and recognizes the need to make reasonable modifications to its policies, regarding assistance offered to passengers who may require additional assistance to use its services.

Under Title II of the ADA, state and local governments are required to make reasonable modifications to policies, practices and procedures where necessary to avoid discrimination.      

For those riders who require additional assistance, the “Agency Name” will endeavor to accommodate all reasonable modification requests for such assistance by following procedures outlined below:

  1. Riders must inform the Gallen Day Center of the need and specific type of additional assistance requested at the time ride reservation is made.
  2. Reservationist will advise Dispatcher of the specific rider need/request. Dispatcher will log the information within the client information system and determine the resources required to accommodate rider.
  3. The Dispatcher will evaluate the request and report to the Director of Transportation whether the request is reasonable to perform.
  4. If the Director of Transportation deems the service requested to be unreasonable to perform or to repeat on a regular basis, he/she must cite specific reasoning to support the finding and inform the Director, Charlene Vannucci.
  5. If the Gallen Center concurs with the finding of the “Enter Name or title”., the rider must be so informed via phone call at least 48 hours before the requested/scheduled trip. The finding must also be communicated to the rider expeditiously by written correspondence. 
  6. Riders may appeal any such decisions by following established ADA grievance procedures. Complaints that a County program, service or activity is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to Director, Charlene Vannucci at cvannucci@jewishhomefamily.org

We tried hiring a health aide directly and ended up having to provide last-minute backup and support. The 24-hour on-call and nursing support makes an incredible difference.
