In Home Senior Care Services with Safe & Reliable Transportation
Learn more about our in home senior care services in Fort Myers, FL
Many seniors, whether due to age related issues, mobility, eyesight loss or other factors, can no longer drive. They are often stuck relying on family, friends or neighbors for rides and many are simply too stubborn to ask for help. This can cause a number of problems including missed doctor’s appointments and isolation. Fortunately, at Assisting Hands in Fort Myers, FL we can help. We offer assisted transportation as part of our in home senior care services. This ensures your loved one always has a ride available without having to feel dependent upon friends and family.
One of the key ways we provide help with transportation is to allow your loved one’s everyday caregiver to do the bulk of the transportation assistance. This ensures that your loved one has a trusted individual to rely on when outside the home. Your loved one’s in home senior care services provider will arrive early before any appointment or outing to help your loved one prepare for their day. They will then make sure he or she can get in and out of the car safely and can stow or carry any walking devices, purses or other necessary items.
Throughout the duration of your loved one’s trip, the care provider can be on hand to find handicap accessible parking, ramps, elevators and more to make sure your loved one is able to get where they need to go safely and securely. Additionally, he or she can be there to accompany the senior client throughout the outing, take notes, provide moral support or act as a companion.
Once the day’s activities have been completed, our senior support staff will make sure your loved one is returned home safely and prepared for the rest of the evening. We can then make sure the appropriate notes or observations are delivered to the correct individuals. This ensures safety and health and closes any gaps in communication that might otherwise arise.
