Transportation Assistance Through Comfort Keepers Home Care
Many seniors lose their ability to drive due to age-related maladies, chronic illness, or injury. Many seniors also live in places where public transportation is not available or is not a reasonable or reliable solution. As a result, these seniors lose their independence and freedom, and many become both physically and socially isolated. They may be unable to keep their doctor's appointments, pick up their prescriptions, or even make it to the store. It is no wonder that a loss of effective transportation is a key indicator of deteriorating senior physical and mental health.
Comfort Keepers home care assistance goes beyond simply solving the transportation dilemma, they offer seniors a hassle-free method of getting to and from home with a simple call. Comfort Keepers has partnered with Lyft, the nation's leader in on-demand transportation services. Yet, seniors do not need to know all of the ins and outs of modern technology to make the system work. In fact, they do not even have to own a smartphone. Seniors simply work with their local Comfort Keepers office. The staff then coordinate with Lyft and take care of the pick-up and drop-off, and return trip details. Lyft vehicles are able to accommodate assistive devices such as wheelchairs and walkers.
In short, a lack of transportation can cause dramatic, life-altering problems for seniors. With Comfort Keepers, these problems can be avoided through the transportation element of home care assistance. For more information, contact a senior care coordinator today.
