Driving is significantly linked to independence. It’s often a very sensitive subject, but being safe on the road has never been more important. If you or your aging family members are struggling with sight issues, delayed reaction times or even confusion due to changes in intersections or roadways, then having someone else drive may be a relief.
Missed appointments, going without food or medications, and fear of driving may be signals that aging loved ones need transportation or errand services. And, it might be as simple as they just don’t want to go to the store on their own.
Managing appointments and errands for someone who is not comfortable driving a vehicle can be time consuming, especially when balancing family and work obligations. We can help.
