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.
