Providing Transportation Assistance for Seniors and Elderly Adults Residing in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Staten Island and Nassau County.
Aside from the home health aide’s primary duty for personal care, they are also available to coordinate senior transportation services. Just because you have limited mobility does not mean that you need to be confined to your four walls. If you have shopped all your life for your own groceries, you may want to continue to do so. A home health aide can safely take you for walks. If you are fit enough to do errands, the home health aide will gladly escort you to make sure you can do so safely and give a helping hand.
Our highly trained caregivers are available to escort you to surgical and medical procedures. You may require assistance going to doctor appointments as well. In that case, the home health aide can both help you arrange senior transportation services and escort you to and from the office. The same is true for any other appointment you are in need of. Our caregivers are always discreet and are well aware that they must follow HIPAA guidelines with respect to all medical information.
Help with transportation can extend to social functions as well. They would be available to escort you to any family events that may arise. Many seniors are deeply involved in their communities and religious institutions. Plan with your caregiver to ensure that the events you want to attend are within your daily schedule.
The aide can escort you to senior centers or friend’s homes. Our certified Home Health Aides can help relieve feelings of isolation and loneliness and encourage more social behaviors. Senior centers have been an integral part of any senior communities for many decades and can be a wonderful place for lunches and activities such as card games and bingo. The aide can easily escort you to and from meeting friends there.
