Make sure your loved one has ongoing transportation for doctor's visits.


What You Should Know

If your loved one doesn't drive anymore, someone will have to get them to doctor visits. Is that you? In a city, mass transit or taxis may be possible, but each has its challenges. Ambulettes provide non-emergency transportation for the elderly and physically challenged, but they can be very time consuming. You can order a car for your loved one using apps like Uber and Lyft — you don’t have to be there to order or pay for the trip. Transportation may be a task that others on your care team agree to handle.

Steps To Take

  • Ask doctors and hospitals for suggestions on transportation.
  • Explore using ride-sharing apps.
  • Look into Ambulette service for your loved one.
