For persons recovering from surgery or unable to drive, trying to get to places you want to with ease can be strenuous. This is where incidental transportation comes in. To make attending medical appointments, grocery shopping, social events, and other important engagements easier for elders.

Under incidental transportation and appointment escort services, caregivers or transportation providers assist seniors in completing their errands. This ensures that seniors can access fresh groceries, household supplies, and other essential items, promoting independence and maintaining an active lifestyle.

Our trained caregivers at Ezra Home Care provide a wide scope of specialized services that help transport the elderly and disabled.

This article will explore what incidental transportation and appointment escorts entail, the scope of activities caregivers execute in transporting senior citizens, and the benefits seniors gain. Additionally, we will explore the importance of seeking the help of a caregiver to ensure seniors receive the necessary transportation assistance.

What Does Transportation Services for Seniors Entail?

Incidental transportation and appointment escort involves:

  • Enabling the elderly and disabled to transport safely
  • Providing social interactions during events
  • Helping them maintain an active lifestyle

Even though we don’t operate as a chauffeur company, we specifically help your elderly loved ones feel like they aren’t missing out on events when facing health issues. Our caregivers are trained to execute ride services for seniors and others who face mobility challenges.

Private Rides Services for the Elderly Provided By Caregivers

At Ezra Home Care, our caregivers plan with you and your elderly loved ones to ensure they aren’t absent from engagements that would boost their social and physical well-being. Some of the services executed by caregivers under incident transportation include:

  1. Transportation to Medical Appointments: Through the help of a caregiver, your elderly loved one can schedule rides to their healthcare providers. They make sure seniors receive the necessary medical care and attention during check-ups, therapy sessions, or specialist visits safely and on time.
  2. Social Outings and Events: Seniors often face social isolation, which can negatively impact their mental and emotional welfare. Incidental transportation services also extend to escorting seniors to social outings and events. Whether it's a trip to a community center, a visit to a local park, or a social gathering, these services allow seniors to engage with other people and maintain an active social life.
  3. Shopping Assistance and Errands: Running errands, such as grocery shopping, can become challenging for seniors who no longer drive or have difficulty with mobility. Under incidental transportation and appointment escort services, caregivers or transportation providers assist seniors in completing their errands. This ensures that seniors can access fresh groceries, household supplies, and other essential items, promoting their independence and overall well-being.
  4. Banking and Financial Tasks: Due to the size of texts on screens or plain distrust for technology, some seniors may find it hard to do certain banking operations on their phones. Thus, they may require transportation assistance for financial tasks, such as depositing checks or paying bills. Care homes can facilitate these errands, providing seniors with peace of mind and ensuring their financial affairs are managed efficiently.
  5. Beauty and Barber Appointments: Maintaining personal grooming and appearances is important for seniors' self-esteem. Care homes can arrange transportation for seniors to visit beauty salons or barbershops, helping them feel good about their physical appearance.
  6. Pet Care Services: Seniors who have pets may need assistance with transportation for veterinary visits or trips to purchase pet supplies. Care homes can accommodate these needs, ensuring that seniors can continue to enjoy the companionship and benefits of pet ownership.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you select caregivers to join the Ezra Home Care team?

Our caregivers undergo a rigorous screening process including a criminal background investigation, certification or licensing verification (in applicable positions), and a thorough reference check. The caregivers that we select are all people that we would want to take care of our own loved ones.

How do I know that I or my loved one will be assigned a caregiver that is a good fit?

First we will conduct a free Safety and Needs Assessment of your loved one or of your current situation. The Safety and Needs Assessment will allow us to customize a care schedule and determine the type of caregiver your loved one or you may need. Then we will give you and your family the chance to meet with several caregivers that match your needs and schedule.

What if the caregiver I am assigned is not a good match for me?

If you find, for any reason, that you would prefer to try another caregiver we will find a replacement for you.

What if I only need help for an hour or two?

No problem. At Ezra Home Care, we have no minimum hour requirements.

If I already live in an assisted living community, can I still use your services?

Absolutely. Many of our clients need more care than an assisted living community can provide but do not want to live in a nursing home. As long as your community approves, we can supplement your care services so that you can remain as independent as possible.

What if I’ve already moved into a nursing home, but still want services that Ezra Home Care offers?

We are happy to assist you no matter where you live. If you find that you’d like a companion to talk to, an escort to an appointment or any type of assistance beyond your nursing home’s services, we are there for you.

Ezra Home Care is a “private pay” service. What does that mean?

Private pay means that services are paid for using personal income or assets—without aid from insurance or government benefits. We would be happy to discuss pricing details with you directly.

Are there any other ways to pay for private home care services?

Yes, there are other available options:
  • Long term care insurance
  • Reverse mortgages
  • Veterans Administrations
  • Workman’s Compensation
  • State and local programs, community organizations
  • Viatical Settlement

Why choose Ezra Home Care over a franchise?

Ezra Home Care is large enough to handle all of your home care needs, yet small enough to give you the personalized service and care you deserve. Since Ezra Home Care is privately owned, we have a greater flexibility of accommodating our clients' needs. We are not bound by territory, and are capable of providing continued care even when our clients are being relocated to another areas. Our decision-making process is more efficient than that of a franchise because all of our decisions are made right in the office, without the need for a comparatively lengthy corporate approval process. Schedule a free Needs and Safety Assessment and you’ll see exactly what we mean.
