At Assisting Hands Home Care, we offer transportation services to the elderly and those with disabilities to grant them the freedom to travel as desired.
In many cases, these individuals could drive in the past, but can no longer safely do so.
This limits their ability to attend social events, get to doctor’s appointments, run important errands, and get around town for other needs.
Through our services, we can ensure that your loved one is no longer prevented from taking part in day-to-day activities. We offer these services to individuals in need in the Westmont, IL, area.
The Dangers of Driving with Limitations
As individuals age and disabilities grow worse, it becomes increasingly dangerous for them to get behind the wheel. Through our transportation services, these individuals will no longer be limited by the availability of their family members to get them around.
They will also be free to travel as needed without putting themselves and others in danger. Limited mobility and decreased reactions simply do not mix well with driving. Other common risks include getting more tickets, getting lost while driving, running out of gas, and losing keys.
If any of these examples become a regular occurrence, it may be time to have professional transportation assistance.
