The quality of life of many older people can be improved by going to community events, meeting friends, running errands, and seeing healthcare providers. We understand how important it is to keep people free, even if they don’t want to or can’t drive. Also, being able to get around can help older people stay in touch with their families, friends, and other important people in their lives. A part of Comfort Keepers home health care services is providing transportation for the elderly.
Where We Can Transport Your Senior Loved One
To make sure that seniors can still go to senior centers, grocery stores, and even get medical transportation, Comfort Keepers trains caregivers on how to provide home health care services such as safe and trustworthy transportation.
As part of their job, Comfort Keepers can give older people rides and help them get around on a daily basis, such as:
- Getting to and from medical appointments and follow-up appointments at medical centers
- Grocery shopping and run errands every day
- Making new friends and getting involved in social events
- Visit relatives
Comfort Keepers allows older people to go anywhere they want without having to drive, travel alone, or rely on public transportation. As long as the elderly want to go see their grandchildren play baseball or look around at the mall, caregivers will go with them.
What Else Can We Provide?
Private and non-emergency medical transportation are two of the services we offer to help older people get to and from medical appointments. This way, they don’t have to rely on public transportation for transportation. We want to make sure that we can get you to and from your old age care facility in a way that fits your needs.
For people who want to stay at home, we train and equip our caregivers to keep their homes clean, cook fresh meals for their loved ones, take care of their personal needs, run errands, and shop for them. We also use Interactive Caregiving to keep older people interested and active in their communities and around the city, and to keep them out and about. You can call our office at (778) 716-0276 right now to find out more about our senior transportation service.
Providing Support During The Transition From The Hospital to Home
In order to get around and go to social events, clients who can’t drive themselves home from a hospital or medical facility may use Comfort Keepers home health care services. They can also use them to go to follow-up appointments and treatment sessions. This link will show you how to find out more about our post-hospital care options.
