Why Senior Transportation Services Are Essential

senior transportation

Mobility and autonomy go together. Americans are part of a society in which transportation is readily available. Whether it’s a car in your garage or a metro pass in your wallet, you are probably accustomed to being able to get around at will. Many who retire to a senior living community are used to driving themselves everywhere. However, there are a number of reasons why that is not necessarily possible anymore. Perhaps you have chosen to give up your car for the sake of finances and reduced hassle, or increasingly impaired vision, peripheral neuropathy, or arthritis make driving impractical or unsafe. Nevertheless, you want to be sure this decision does not render you house-bound.

Senior transportation services are a fundamental and necessary part of a quality senior living facility. Thus, it is essential to ask, “How will I get where I want to go?” when shopping for a retirement community.

Senior Transportation Services

For seniors living in retirement communities or at home, there is no reason for giving up the car keys should mean a loss of independence. Americans value their mobility, and accessible transportation options for seniors are vital for physical and mental health.

Seniors require:

  • Access to medical services – Without transportation, seniors can miss appointments, or their continuity of care may be interrupted. These consequences can have a real and lasting impact on health.
  • Options for mitigating social isolation – Even in a vibrant community like Calder Woods, many residents want to meet friends for lunch, spend time with their adult children and grandkids, and interact in a bustling, lively public settings.
  • The chance to live a full life of meaning and value – Art lovers should be able to get to the museum. Those who enjoy fishing need access to the fishing dock. Birders have to go where the birds are. Sacrificing these interests and passions that make life rich should never be necessary.
