There are many different home care services that can be provided to your loved one. Some of these include meal preparation, companionship, light housekeeping, and even live-in home care services. One type of home care service that you may be interested in for your loved one when they need a little bit of extra help, but can still live on their own includes transportation services.
You may have noticed that the driving of your loved one is not as good as it once was. There may be a few new dents and dings on their car or they may have recently gotten into an accident while on the road. There are many things that may have caused these problems with driving including confusion, delayed times in their reactions, and even vision problems. For the most part, the observations will have been made by you that your loved one should not be behind the wheel. On the other hand, if the situation has gotten bad enough, your loved one may have had their license revoked due to their bad driving skills.
Despite the inability to drive anymore, your loved one will still need to make it to their doctor appointments or to run some errands. Making it to these appointments is critical to keeping your loved one healthy and to ensure that they still receive their medications and the care that they need. While you know that these appointments are very important, it may not always be possible for you or another family member to drive your loved one to these appointments, especially in the case where your loved one has one or more appointment each week.
This does not mean that your loved one has to suffer. They do not have to stay at home and schedule their appointments around when someone else can make it to take them to the appointment. They do not have to miss out on important appointments because they are not able to make it and the doctor is not able to take them at any other time. There are options that make it possible for your loved one to receive the care that they need, regardless of the schedule that you currently have.
One service that home care can offer is transportation services. Whether you are looking for someone to take your loved one to an appointment on occasion when you are not able to get off from work or you would like them to take over a regular appointment each week, you will be able to find the services that your family needs. Transportation services from home care are even able to help your loved one get around in order to run errands such as picking up prescriptions or groceries.
No longer is your loved one stuck going nowhere if they are not allowed to drive anymore. There are a wide variety of services available in order to get your loved one where they need to go without disturbing your schedule all of the time.

Home to Stay Senior Care Solutions is owned and operated by the Dubler and Skole Families and was started because of experiences they had with their own Families. In one situation Mom was living alone and had a fall. It was not until this fall that the family realized they were unprepared.
When it was time for their Mom to come home, she needed companion and personal care to assist her and prevent another accident. Like most people in this situation, they were confused and did not know where to go for help. It was this life-changing experience that lead to starting a home care company that is focused on enabling those who wish to stay at home and age in place.
