Driving is a privilege that many people take for granted until they can no longer drive. For senior citizens and adults with disabilities who do not have the ability to drive, getting from place to place is difficult and stressful. They may be forced to rely on friends and family members to get them around and help with errands, and there may be times when friends and family are not available. In these cases, seniors and adults with disabilities can reach out to a home care agency like Assisting Hands Home Care to provide transportation services.
Assisting Hands Home Care provides senior transportation services in Matteson, IL to help senior citizens and adults with disabilities who need rides and assistance with important errands. Our caregivers who provide transportation services have good driving records and car insurance and will help you or your loved ones get safely from point A to point B. We can work with you to form a transportation schedule so that your loved ones do not miss a single doctor appointment, family gathering, or religious service.
When is it Time to Give Up Driving?
The ability to drive gives people a level of independence to get to where they need and want to go on their own. Because of this, families may have a difficult time getting their elderly loved ones to give up driving. If your loved ones have impaired vision, slow reactions due to limited mobility, or a decline in cognitive abilities, it may be time for them to give up driving.
It is understandable for seniors to get upset when their relatives try to get them to quit driving. Make sure you talk to your elderly loved ones and discuss the danger they put themselves and others in when they get behind the wheel. Providing an alternative like senior transportation services will also help make the decision to stop driving easier.
