Senior citizens and those with disabilities often have difficulties with running weekly errands and getting to local/family events. This can result in frustration and complications if not addressed adequately.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide transportation services as an add-on service to home care in Park Ridge, IL. Our goal is to make transportation and the retrieval of necessities the least of your concerns.
Please note that senior transportation services may only be added on to an existing home care service; this is not a standalone service.
Add Senior Transportation to Your Home Care Package
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.
Transportation and Errand Services
The importance of having reliable transportation cannot be overstated. It is essential to surviving in this day and age. When you choose to work with us here at Assisting Hands Home Care, we will help with the following errands and more:
- Picking up prescription medications
- Grocery shopping
- Organizing and delivering mail
- Transportation involving a wheelchair
- Home delivery services
- Medical transportation (not in emergency situations)
In addition to assisting with errands, we provide transportation to and from events that are either desired are required. For example, we can get you to and from doctor’s appointments, religious services, family events, recreational activities, and other social events.
Our services are completely customizable based on your needs. We sit down with our clients and their family members in order to determine what transportation services will be required.
Experienced Caregiver Will Pick You Up and Drop You Off
Perhaps the greatest benefit of our transportation services is the ability to maintain independence. Without reliable transportation, it is next to impossible to live in the comfort of your own home. Additionally, we provide professional transportation that utilizes the services of a skilled and experienced caregiver using their vehicle for transportation (but they can also use yours if that’s what you need).
This enhances safety and allows our clients to hold on to the freedom they have grown accustomed to. Our caregivers will also help with carrying items (e.g. groceries, mail, packages, medications, etc.).
Because we drive to social events, our clients benefit from greater levels of social interaction and companionship. This is great for the psychological health of physically or mentally limited individuals. Our caregivers are very personable and are happy to help their clients get to and from various events.
