Transportation Assistance for Seniors in New York City – serving Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Staten Island and Nassau County.
Just because you don’t drive anymore doesn’t mean you have to stop going out. A home health aide can assist the elderly to and from their desired destinations. Escorting you in your errands and transportation are some of the core services of senior caregiving, and your caregiver will be glad to help you stay active and engaged in your community.
The loss of mobility has become an unavoidable part of aging. Since getting to and from places alone can be hazardous, escorting seniors ensures that they are not completely homebound or dependent upon others for rides. This helps lessen the blow of the loss of mobility that comes with age. Our home health aides are able to do errands with your elderly loved one. When it is necessary for the client to go to medical or doctor appointments or the like, our aides will gladly escort them to and from. Additionally, for our existing homecare clients, we have an arrangement with a car service well versed in the transportation needs of the elderly that could be called upon when our client’s need arises.
If you enjoy visiting nearby friends and relations, your caregiver can accompany you. A home health aide can also maintain your parent’s calendar and make sure they make it to important appointments and escort them too. Plan with your caregiver to ensure that the events you want to attend are within your daily schedule. Once you have planned a time that works for everyone, you and your caregiver can make all the arrangements.
David York Agency has a sizable team of skilled aides that are expert at safely transporting those of limited physical ability in and out of cars, to and from appointments and assisting seniors in stores. We would be happy to discuss your personal care and transportation needs with you.
