We know that getting out of the house is good for the mind, body and spirit. So we provide transportation as part of our services. Whether your loved one has difficulty moving around or with driving, our caretakers will get them where they need to be safely and with a companion for the trip!
We will provide transportation to and from:
- Grocery store
- Dry cleaners
- Medical appointments
- Beauty salons
- Shopping centers, and more!
Whether it’s due to getting older or a recent injury or surgery, sometimes driving (at least driving yourself) isn’t a viable option. Sometimes not being able to drive yourself makes you feel limited in what you can do or where you can go. If you’re loved one feels stranded because they have limited mobility or can’t drive, we can help.
Our insurance dictates that our transportation services must be “incidental transportation,” or part of our home care services. So, we can provide free transportation as long as we are providing at least four hours of care. The good news is that means that your loved one will be getting a ride with a familiar and friendly face!
How does it work? If you use your own vehicle, transportation is free. If you prefer that the caretaker use his or her vehicle, there is a nominal fee for gas and the wear and tear on the vehicle. Our transportation services are affordable, and just another example of how we want to go the extra mile for you and your loved one!
With a busy schedule, getting yourself to a doctor’s appointment, or wherever you may need to be, on time is challenging enough. Having to get someone else there can be flat out overwhelming! Let us take care of getting your loved on from point A to point B. You won’t need to worry about running behind schedule or making a special trip. Chances are your loved one will want or need to get out every once in a while. When that happens, our transportation services have you covered. Feel free to give Professional Caretakers a call to learn more about our transportation services and more.
