Have you ever thought about what would happen if the transportation you use is no longer an option? How would you continue to maintain your independence so that you could continue with your daily routines? These are some scary questions to answer. Much of the time, seniors are able to look to friends or relatives to assist with transportation, but this isn't always the most convenient option especially as we all lead busy lives. Home Instead Senior Care is here to help relieve stress and give a peace of mind to everyone.

Recently, John, used Home Instead Senior Care of Orange Park to transport him to an out-patient surgery. With his son out of state and no friends available to drive him, John hopped online and found Home Instead's transportation services.  Home Instead CAREGivers don't simply drop off and pick up family members. They help them get ready, transport and accompany them, providing whatever assistance is required. "Your CAREGiver arrived early, which was good because as we were getting on the road, the hospital called and asked if I could arrive early, and I explained we were already on the road heading that way," he says.

Besides going to doctor's appointments, Home Instead can help with other transportation options such as:

·         General shopping

·         Grocery shopping

·         Hairdresser/barber appointments

·         Medical testing and outpatient procedures

·         Prescription drop-off and pick-up

·         Religious services, concerts, plays, lectures

·         Special family events like weddings

·         Therapy sessions

 

"The caregiver was very responsible. She didn't move the car until my seatbelt was fastened, used signals at all turns and lane changes and didn't tailgate. She knew exactly where she was going, which made the entire experience less stressful," says John.
