Decreased vision, impaired hearing and slowed motor reflexes force seniors to stop driving at a certain point. But that doesn’t stop them having to go places such as doctor’s appointments, the senior center and the grocery store. You can’t be around 24/7 to act as chauffeur, and not all appointments can be scheduled around when you are available.
Research shows that elderly people who don’t have a transportation system in place attend fewer medical appointments, do less grocery shopping and reduce the frequency of their visits to family and friends. This can lead to health issues and loneliness.
Senior Transportation Is More than a Ride
In addition to the other home care services we provide here at Towne Home Care, we offer assistance with transportation. We firmly believe that senior transportation can be more than just a ride. Our escort drivers or home health aides will drive seniors back and forth to their various appointments. Aides will also assist in tasks such as grocery shopping or visiting the post office. At doctor’s appointments, aides may serve as advocates for the senior and can take notes so that no important information is forgotten.
Since it’s important for seniors to be in control of their own lives, our home health aides will work with them to run errands at times that are convenient for them. Our aides perform every task with a smile on their faces and with the utmost compassion and consideration, so that necessary tasks become pleasant pastimes.
Please contact us to put a transportation system in place for your loved one.
When we needed a home-care nurse for my mother, a Towne nurse arrived at the house within hours. The prompt, wonderful service and level of personal care surpasses anything I could have expected, and while I hope to never need nursing care again, I’m so glad to know Towne Nursing is there when I need you.
Your aide, Emmanuel, was my husband’s salvation. He can be cantankerous, and Emmanuel was able to diffuse his tension and get him to laugh. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Emmanuel, who made things so much better for my husband. He is an asset to your company.
My brother and I rate your company with the highest of praise. You provided kind, compassionate, excellent care for our parents at the end of their days. Joel [Director of Operations] – you, your wife, and your staff are personable and professional. You never failed to deliver excellence and when it came to a financial hurdle, you put our minds at rest right away. Your nurse Reggie took care of my father with loving caring, and we will always be grateful. Reggie and the rest of your staff deserve every penny of their salaries, and then some!
I cannot recommend my mother’s aide, Rita, highly enough. She was kind, attentive and nurturing, and cared for my mother with the devotion of a daughter.
Towne Nursing put our minds at ease when we were reluctant to hire a live-in aide. Yaa, your staffer who arrived at our house, was amazing at handling my mother. She took care of all her needs, day or night, from cooking meals to healing bed sores. Her laughter was contagious and her level of care for Mom unsurpassed. She became a member of the family and we will miss her.
Thank you to Towne Nursing. We feel blessed to have had your aide, Akua, provide loving care to our parents – my mother with Alzheimer’s and my father’s acute health care needs (including taking full charge of Mom while Dad had a medical emergency that took him back to the hospital). And when he returned home, Akau was the only one guaranteed to get him to eat a full meal. She helped him regain strength, and cared for him round the clock after his subsequent surgery. We remain eternally grateful for her role in nursing my father back to health. We recommend Akua – there’s none better.
Your home health care aide, Naomi, is an absolute blessing! She took care of all of Mom’s physical, emotional and social needs, and went above and beyond her expected responsibilities to cooking nutritious meals and scrubbing the bathroom. Naomi became family; I would not hesitate to recommend her.
Akua has taken careful care of my mother for the past seven months, a particular challenge due to my mother’s high fall risk. Akua has been an honest and competent companion, keeping my mother freshly dressed in addition to cleaning her apartment. She also checks in with me daily, which is exactly what I need as a daughter.
