Driving Miss Daisy is coming to the town of Poole and offering its unique transport services to the people of the south coast.

Care franchise Driving Miss Daisy has announced that it will now be operating in the town of Poole, helping elderly and vulnerable people retain their independence with its unique transport service.

The first Companion Driver to join the team was Lesley Samways, a compassionate local who is thrilled to be making a difference to her community. Speaking about what motivated her to join Driving Miss Daisy, Lesley said:

I have always been passionate about helping people and have previously run my own child-minding business and been a carer with Poole council. This new role enables me to help people get out and about, retain their independence and have fun. Ive already provided transport for an elderly lady to attend a wedding, trips to the hospital and a gentleman with learning difficulties to a holiday in Gloucestershire.

Driving Miss Daisy first began operating in New Zealand, after the founder was inspired by the Oscar-winning film of the same name. It realised there was a gap in the market for a transport service that not only got people from A to B, but that offered companionship and assistance along the way. Now, it has welcomed more than 75 franchisees across the world, including in the UK and is looking for new individuals to help it expand even further.

The Poole franchisee is hoping to expand operations further by recruiting new drivers that will allow it to transport more people across the area. All of Driving Miss Daisys drivers are DBS checked and trained in proper handling to help clients with mobility problems, as well as being certified Dementia Friends, meaning theyll take great care of clients during any journey.
