Hi, My mom has been a resident for many years, 93 now, she needs help at home and I am hoping the Senior Center has resources for our seniors in the town. I was very disturbed to call ERIE COunty going places who offer wheelchair van service to every town, and I mean every town EXCEPT Town of TonawandaCan someone explain why this is? And why when I call, or any information or help no one is interested to help.
