Seniors Need Safe And Reliable Transportation.
There are a number of reasons why a senior adult may need help with transportation. And while friends and family are often willing and able to help drive a senior loved one where they need to go, work and family responsibilities don’t always allow for it. Driving Services for Seniors provides older adults a safe and reliable way to get where they need to go.

Whatsmore, our Comfort Keepers offer more than pick up and drop off services. When you book Driving Services for Seniors with our team your driver will accompany you to and from your appointments or errands (if you wish) and ensure you get safely home when you are done.
Driving Services For Seniors Help To Maintain A Senior’s Quality Of Life.
Reliable transportation is a crucial part of being an independent senior adult. Asking friends and family to drive you to errands or appointments is a wonderful option but does mean that a senior has to rely on the time and availability of others. Being dependent in this way can cause some seniors to worry about imposing on their loved ones’ time and goodwill. It can also mean less privacy and independence — both of which are just as important to seniors as any other adult.
Being able to book Driving Services for Seniors through Comfort Keepers Peterborough puts our senior clients back in the driver’s seat, so to speak. It helps to maintain their independence, self-confidence and overall quality of life. Whether our clients need transportation to and from doctor appointments or simply to head out and run some personal errands, our Comfort Keepers are happy to help as both driver and companion.

Some of the more common reasons our clients engage us for driving services include:
