For your aging parent, driving can leave them feeling confused, frightened or unable to negotiate the high volume of traffic entering and exiting parking lots. Aging parents may miss important doctor’s appointments versus placing a burden on their children by asking for a ride. Transportation is crucial to ensure access to essential services such as medical care and grocery shopping. The availability of adequate transportation enables older persons to live independently in their communities, helps to prevent isolation and the possible need for long-term care placement. Many older people, who do not drive, must rely on family and friends to provide much of the transportation. But for others, it is necessary to find community resources to provide transportation, as this vital support service may be their only connection to the outside world. Not only do we provide transportation but, our caregivers can even run errands–while your loved one enjoys time in the garden or relaxes while reading a good book.
Finding transportation can be challenging when your loved one needs help with driving to doctor appointments, shopping trips to the grocery, pharmacy and other local errands. It is often difficult for well-meaning but busy families with demanding schedules to find time to transport their elderly parents.
