Transportation Services for Elderly and Disabled from Assisting Hands Schaumburg
Please note – this is not a stand alone service. It’s offered only as part of our other home care services. This is not a taxi service.
Elderly individuals, and others with physical or mental limitations, often require assistance when it comes time to pick up groceries, travel to social events, or run other errands. This is because of their inability to operate a vehicle in a safe manner.
At Assisting Hands Schaumburg, we provide transportation services to assist in these scenarios. It is not always easy or practical for a loved one to provide these services, which is why we encourage you to let us take this responsibility off your shoulders. General transportation should be the least of your concerns.
Our Transportation Service is not for Seniors Only
As we mentioned above, senior citizens are not the only ones who can benefit from our transportation and errand assistance services.
Individuals who cannot drive, have limited vision, struggle with memory loss, get confused easily, or have similar limitations can all benefit. We can also provide these services as frequently or infrequently as they are needed.
This flexibility provides a great benefit to family members of the affected individual, as well. It can be difficult to set time aside to run errands for a loved one on a regular basis when other responsibilities must be addressed. This is one of many reasons why we are happy to help.
General Transportation and Assistance with Errands
When somebody cannot drive or easily travel by themselves, there are a variety of complications that can arise. Some of these problems are psychological, as the individual is unable to attend social events, while other problems are physical, as the individual cannot pick up food or medications in an efficient manner.
We assist with all of these situations and more through our transportation services. At Assisting Hands Schaumburg, we provide the following as required:
- Assistance with running errands (e.g. grocery shopping, organizing and delivering mail, picking up medications, etc.)
- Transportation to and from doctor’s appointments
- Help with attending social events (e.g. family gatherings, religious services, recreational activities, etc.)
All of our professional drivers are highly experienced and skilled in order to ensure a safe ride. In the case of running errands, our caregivers can assist with carrying items, as well. This means that we will not only get you to where you need to be, but also retrieve the items required. As a result, you can expect a safety net on multiple fronts, which is perhaps the greatest benefit of our transportation services.
