Often, it’s difficult to know when a senior should stop driving. If no significant health crises prevent them from getting behind the wheel, you may see smaller, incremental changes that indicate driving is no longer safe for them. Perhaps their reflexes begin to slow down, or their vision deteriorates over time. No matter what the reason, you may find yourself becoming their preferred mode of transportation more and more often.
However, it won’t always be possible for you to leave work or family responsibilities in the middle of the day in order to attend to their needs – no matter how much you want to. And when your own needs prevent you from transporting them in the evenings and on weekends, how will they get the care they need? Doctors, grocers, pharmacists – the list of places your senior must go may be long, but your time is often running short.
Highlands/Baywood Park senior home care – the way you prefer
The Institute on Aging is proud to offer solutions to families just like yours across California. We know how crucial senior appointments can be, and how having transportation is vital to maintaining their health and sense of independence. That’s why we have trained staff members who can transport and accompany your loved one wherever they need to go.
In addition to services such as a home health aide or visiting nurse, transportation is one of the key features that seniors need in order to continue living in their homes. If the elder prefers that our staff drive their own cars, we are happy to do that. If the senior wishes to be conveyed in their personal vehicle (driven by staff), that is an option as well. The IOA stands ready to serve in whatever capacity you need that falls under our purview.
