As the family member of an elderly parent, chances are, you worry about how they’ll get from point A to point B as soon as their driving skills begin to deteriorate—whether it’s because of mobility or visual impairments.
After all, the ability for them to stay mobile presents a wealth of benefits, from maintaining their social independence to reducing feelings of isolation or loneliness, and, most importantly, attending regular appointments to prolong their health.
So, what happens when you can’t be the one to transport your parent when they need it most? Georgetown Home Care is here to lend your family a helping hand.
We understand that, in the midst of your busy life, it can become increasingly difficult for you to provide your loved one with the care they need and deserve.
And, for that reason, we’ve partnered with a leading transportation platform, Uber Health, to provide senior transportation services that are anything but a simple taxi service. Instead, when coupled with our companion care services, your loved one is given complete, compassionate support to enhance not only their health but also their life as a whole.
Dependable, Customized Senior Transportation Services
When you choose Georgetown Home Care, you can rest assured knowing we will provide reliable transportation options that meet your family member’s needs during any day of the week.
How does it work exactly? Our partnership with Uber Health—a HIPPA-compliant transportation platform for healthcare organizations like ours—allows our caregivers to notify our office of the need for a ride—whether for grocery shopping, getting prescriptions, and attending appointments or social outings—upon arrival at your loved one’s residence.
From there, we’ll arrange for the Uber, while also providing the driver’s information to the caregiver on-site. Best of all, there’s never a moment your loved one will be without the comfort of a Georgetown Home Care staff member as they’re able to walk arm-in-arm from door to door.
But, that’s not all we provide. If you’re eager to keep your family member in the comforts of his or her own home for as long as possible, yet you’re unsure of what that may mean for you, we’re here to help.
When coupling senior transportation services with our in-home companion care services, we’ll alleviate certain stresses you may have by providing the following activities:
|Routine Visits for Welcomed Fellowship
Despite the ability to stay within their own home, feelings of loneliness and isolation are often inevitable for seniors. And, those feelings can negatively impact one’s physical and mental health. So, as part of our services, our companion caregivers are available to visit on a regular basis to enjoy a meal, conversation, movie, concert, and simply listen in as your family member recalls joyful adventures and memories.
A clean, healthy living environment is essential to the overall health of seniors. But, we’re aware that, as your family member ages, housekeeping can become a real chore. Therefore, the companion caregiver assigned to your family will be happy to provide light housekeeping assistance. This includes dusting, vacuuming, cleaning the kitchen, changing linens, and more.
When your family member’s energy level declines, keeping a clean home can be a trying task. One of our companion caregivers will perform light housekeeping duties that have a direct impact on the health and safety of our senior clients—such as maintaining a clean and organized kitchen or bathroom.
|Recreational Activities & Light Exercise
Your loved one can benefit from partaking in activities he or she enjoys on a regular basis—from improved mobility to wellbeing and even an increased sense of self-sufficiency. Therefore, we’re committed to being active and playing brain games alongside them to exercise both the mind and body.
Superior, Skilled & Kind-Hearted Caregivers to Lend Your Loved One a Helping Hand
As your neighborhood home care company, we’re focused on serving you and your family. With a professional and compassionate team of caregivers, you can look forward to your loved one getting the personalized assistance and companionship they not only need but also long for as they continue to get older.
And, to ensure we successfully deliver on that commitment, we thoughtfully take the time to match our senior clients with the proper companion care services, as well as a caregiver, that meet their individual desires, personality traits, hobbies, and social temperament.
