Seniors and others with physical restrictions often need assistance getting around and turn to senior transportation services companies. We all need a little help sometimes. At Neighborly Home Care, our home care professionals provide care and aid, and also help clients run errands in Philadelphia, PA, and Delaware for seniors who cannot do so or need assistance with specific tasks. One of the biggest hurdles seniors face concerning errands is that they are too far away from amenities or cannot drive themselves. Our caregivers can help you or your loved ones by offering errand services.
Seniors who are active and get out of the house from time to time are happier and healthier. We enable this by providing the transportation options and assistance they need to complete their chores. We can also offer companionship on trips to the doctor’s office if no family member can take time off work to be with them.
Neighborly Home Care’s professional caregivers can provide transportation and errand services in Philadelphia for seniors as part of full time care. For example, when seniors in our care need to attend doctor appointments, their care providers will drive them to the appointment, escort them inside, and be available to take notes during the visit. These notes can be helpful later when family members want to stay up to date on loved ones’ care. In addition, the caregiver will pick up prescriptions and return home with our senior client after the appointment.
Whether clients need their caregivers to take them to appointments or pick up a prescription, in home care professionals at Neighborly Home Care can ensure seniors get to their destination safely. Depending on the level of care an older adult receives, our caregiver may also complete the errand alone while they relax in the comfort of home.
Our caregivers try to take our clients along whenever possible because we wish to keep our clients as active and engaged in their daily activities and lives as they can be. However, for some clients, leaving home may be unfeasible. In other instances, scheduling conflicts may require that someone else run an errand on their behalf. For example, grocery shopping can be done by the in home care professional if the client can be left alone or if their family is visiting.
Our senior transportation services ensure that we meet each of our clients’ out-of-home needs, using private transportation that is wheelchair accessible. To maintain your health and well-being and that of your family member, we understand that leaving the house, for several reasons, may be necessary. Social interaction, participating in activities to maintain one’s health, routine, independence, and happiness, is essential even while receiving professional home care services.
All too often, necessary errands can be neglected by seniors who cannot get everything done. This development can lead to unfilled prescriptions, a lack of fresh groceries, laundry and other cleaning or maintenance tasks going undone, or broken items in the house never being repaired or replaced. We will do everything we can to complete all of these daily tasks necessary to maintain seniors’ lifestyles while involving them personally to the extent that their ability level allows.
We have individual errand services available for Main Line Philadelphia area residents who need some help with transportation. To take advantage of our errand services in Philadelphia, please note that we must have adequate time to schedule. Our standard service requires a 4-hour minimum and must be scheduled 24 hours in advance.
We understand that the level of elder care services varies per person, and we can create a customized care plan to best suit you or your family member’s needs. We are happy to schedule a consultation to discuss your loved one’s specific needs.
Errand services at Neighborly Home Care include senior transportation to and from wherever they may need to go in the local area. These senior transportation services can consist of driving to doctor/medical appointments, salon or hair appointments, the post office, the grocery store, and social events or other locations as needed.
Depending on the required level of care, the person receiving care may or may not be present when the errands are performed. For example, a caretaker may act as an escort or companion if an elderly individual can travel. In other cases, a professional may run the errands in place of the person for whom they are providing care.
Regularly attending doctor’s appointments and picking up prescriptions from the pharmacy is crucial for many senior citizens. Once individuals have reached a certain age and have experienced changes to their health, neglecting to refill medications can be detrimental. Neighborly Home Care’s caregivers help ensure that you or your loved ones continue to live a healthy life.
