Mobility and access to reliable transportation are important elements in maintaining regular routines and quality of life. Everything from a trip to the grocery store to a scheduled card game with friends requires a drive or ride on public transportation that may be difficult for you or a loved one to navigate on their own.
The natural impairments in coordination and motor skills that result from aging can make it impractical, and even dangerous, for the elderly to continue driving on their own at a certain point.
Meeting Transportation Needs
Some of the signs to look out for when determining whether you or a loved one may need assistance with transportation needs include:
- Vision problems
- Delayed reaction time
- Traffic violations
- Multiple parking tickets
- Confusion while driving
Even simple missteps like misplacing the car keys, getting lost or even forgetting to fill the gas tank can impact an elderly person’s ability to get around safely and in a timely manner. At Right Choice Caregiving, our professional in-home caregiving specialists can help ease the burden of transportation and help our clients to safely get to every appointment and social engagement.
Driving can be an important factor in a person’s sense of independence and confidence in their ability to remain self-sufficient for as long as possible. The highly qualified staff at Right Choice Caregiving is trained to approach each situation with respect, sensitivity and compassion to every client’s needs. Rather than feeling like they are losing an essential privilege, Right Choice Caregiving professionals will make each client feel as if they are in the company of a trusted family member or friend.Contact Us Today
