This can result in frustration and complications if not addressed adequately. At Assisting Hands Park Ridge, we provide transportation services to those in need in Park Ridge, IL. Our goal is to make transportation and the retrieval of necessities the least of your concerns.
Who Can Benefit
There are a number of individuals who can benefit from transportation services. The vast majority of our clientele are either unable to operate a vehicle, or struggle with memory loss, directional confusion, and similar limitations.
In many cases, a loved one performs these services for a family member in need. The downside to this scenario is the frequency and time involved in providing this help. If this describes your situation, we can give you a much-needed break, or simply take over transportation services and errand assistance altogether.
