Incidental Transportation Service
When your senior has a doctor's appointment, needs to go to the hospital for tests, or simply wants to do some shopping, Home Instead Senior Care CAREGivers can be of valuable assistance.
Home Instead Senior Care of Victoria incorporates incidental transportation as part of our companionship care services. This means we won't just pick up your senior and drop them off at their destination like a taxi. We'll help them get ready, accompany them to their appointment, take notes (upon request), stay until they are ready to leave, and then take them back home. Upon return home, we will stay with the senior until they are settled back in and ready to safely resume regular activities.
Here are just a few examples of how we can help:
- Doctor's appointments and therapy sessionsMedical testing and procedures
- Hairdresser or barber appointments
- Visits with friends and family
- Religious services, lectures, plays, concerts
- Special family events (weddings, birthdays, graduations, reunions, etc.)
Or, we can help with routine errands like:
- Drop off /pick up dry cleaning
- Pick up prescriptions
- Grocery shopping
- General shopping
There is a four-hour minimum per visit, and we prefer at least a 24-hour notice. We can provide service for a single event, or on a regular schedule, seven days a week including holidays.
Since we are a non-medical service, our CAREGivers are not permitted to do any heavy lifting. So, if your elder uses a walker or a wheelchair, they must be able to transfer from that device to the vehicle with minimal assistance from our CAREGiver.
