Driving Miss Daisy Didcot
With a strong background in the care sector and a natural passion to help people, husband-and-wife team Zororo Mubaya and Terence Kavuru opened our transport and companion service on Wantage Road in Didcot in July 2019 to assist anyone of any age who needs a hand.
We offer assistance of all kinds ranging from help with shopping trips to support at family events or even just spending a couple of hours chatting or playing board games with someone who might spend a lot of time alone. We are trained in first aid and have wheelchair accessible vehicles and have also passed this knowledge onto our growing team of Companion Drivers.
With our experience we wanted to take our transferable skills and experiences with working with supported living and social care clients who have a need for the transport and companionship that Driving Miss Daisy can offer. Driving Miss Daisy is often described as ‘family when family can’t be there’. We are really enjoying doing this so far – every day has been different, and we have the pleasure of helping and chatting to people from all walks of life.
During the coronavirus outbreak we have been meticulous about cleaning and have continued to provide the transport service to those most in need.
