TRANSPORTATION MAY INCLUDE:
Getting out can help combat these feelings, as well as meeting up with friends and maintaining an active social life. Whether it’s going for a walk at a favorite park, visiting a museum, or meeting friends for lunch, these activities are physically and mentally stimulating, and provide your loved one with the social connections they need to maintain their health and well-being.
Travel For Medical Care
Another major concern is that millions of elderly people in the US don’t get the medical attention they need because they are, or feel, homebound. They rely on family and friends, who aren’t always available, to take them to long doctor’s appointments. The desire to not feel like a burden can even lead them to delay or avoid getting medical help they need.
We’ve long understood how valuable transportation is to maintaining a sense of independence and well-being for each of our clients. For our caregivers, this is just another crucial part of our companionship services.
No Specialized Transportation Service
Every caregiver we hire must have a current driver’s license and insurance, and provide a vehicle for transporting your family member. Caregivers track mileage, and bill according to the IRS mandated mileage reimbursement rates. Our goal is to ensure that your loved one is safe and comfortable. If your loved one prefers to be transported in their own vehicle, we can accommodate this preference.
Your loved ones may not be able to drive themselves, and you can’t always be there to take them where they want or need to go, but ApexCare can. If you’re looking for in-home care for a family member, but are worried about their transportation needs, call us today. We can start the process of arranging companionship care and transportation that you can trust.
