Safe & Reliable Senior Transportation to Medical Appointments


Seniors who miss doctor appointments are more likely to experience a delayed diagnosis, mismanaged chronic condition, and decreased quality of life. However, many of them have no choice. Not having reliable transportation makes it impossible for them to get the care they need.

At Georgetown Home Care, we understand that older adults need a safe and reliable way to get to their medical appointments. This is why we offer two convenient options to ensure that your loved one arrives on time and in comfort.

Read on to learn how our medical transportation for seniors service can help them maintain their independence and access the care they need to stay healthy.

Our Senior Transportation Options

We designed our senior transportation services to address the unique needs of older adults who struggle to get to their medical appointments. Choose from two convenient options: Caregiver Transportation Services and Uber Health Transportation Services.

Caregiver Transportation Services

We match your senior with a qualified professional with a valid license, a personal vehicle, and a safe driving record. Once paired, your loved one schedules weekly appointments and shares the details with us. We’ll then provide transportation to each appointment and ensure a safe and timely arrival.

Typically, our caregivers provide transportation to appointments and social events. However, in situations where our clients require extra support, such as being unstable or at risk of wandering off, we’ll send a caregiver to accompany them in an Uber. This ensures our clients receive the added care and attention they need during transportation.

Uber Health Transportation Services

Our partnership with Uber Health, a HIPAA-compliant transportation platform, enables us to provide safe and reliable transportation for one-off appointments. Our caregivers will notify our office when they need to schedule a ride. We then arrange for an Uber to pick up your loved one and their caregiver from their home.

The Uber Health transportation service then takes your senior to their medical appointment, grocery store, pharmacy, or social outing. This option is ideal for elderly individuals who require transportation for a single visit or occasional appointments.

Benefits of Our Senior Transportation Services

Our services provide a range of benefits that cater to the unique needs of seniors and their families. We understand the importance of reliable transportation and are designed to positively impact daily life.

Enhanced Safety and Comfort

We strive to ensure that your loved one feels at ease from when they leave their home until they return. Our caregivers and drivers are dedicated to providing a secure and relaxing environment and will make adjustments to meet individual needs.

Reduced Stress and Anxiety

Our transportation services alleviate the stress and anxiety of navigating unfamiliar routes or traveling alone. They will provide a reassuring presence to ensure your loved one arrives safely and on time.

Increased Flexibility and Convenience

Our office handles the transportation logistics, giving your elderly adult more time to focus on other priorities. We designed our services to be flexible and convenient and to cater to each client’s unique needs.

Reliable and Timely Arrivals

We ensure that your loved one arrives at their appointment on time, every time. Our caregivers and drivers are reliable and strive to provide a stress-free experience.

Personalized Transportation Solutions

We offer customized transportation solutions tailored to each client’s unique needs. Our goal is to create a comfortable environment for your senior to focus on their medical appointment.

Costs and Limitations

Our transportation services cost the same hourly rate as having a caregiver. The mileage rate is fifty cents per mile. The fare is separate if taking Uber Health. Most of our clients use our transportation services for one-off trips, but some prefer to schedule regular transportation.

There is no limit to how far a caregiver will travel for a pickup or appointment, although most prefer to be within the DC metro area. Additionally, they are paid hourly, so there is no time limit for how long they will wait during an appointment.
