Transportation Assistance is Part of Our Senior Care in Royal Oak, MI
Learn more about our loving senior care options in your area
A common difficulty that many elderly people experience is the loss of ability to drive. This can be a devastating blow for some or a gradual change for others, but the result for both is the same. If there is a beloved elder in your life who can no longer drive, it is important to know that there are safe, reliable and affordable transportation options available to them. In fact, if they are already working with one of our senior care aides, they may have access to this service and just not know. Because transportation is often a vital part of care, we strive to hire aides who are both licensed and insured as well as familiar with the area.
A senior care aide can help with a ride to the following and more:
- Doctor’s appointments
- Therapy appointments
- Grocery store
- Friends and family
- Drug Store
Studies have shown that there are a number of benefits to being mobile. Not only does it provide a sense of independence, but it fosters social and emotional bonds and allows for elderly persons to be active in their day to day life. Senior care aides routinely take their clients to doctor’s appointments, grocery shopping and on other errands. They take the time to get to know their clients as well. Often you may see them visiting the Royal Oak Community Center or the Clawson Senior Center. Our senior care transportation services are more than just a ride to and from as well. Aides stay on the premises the whole time so it is similar to having a friend or family member provide a ride, without the worry of having to ask for help getting places.
It’s important to know that there are transportation options out there. See what they are for you or a senior in your life by filling out the contact us form. You can also call (248) 236-5627 and speak with a representative today.
