Non-Emergency Medical Transportation
Your Accessible transportation services are critical for enabling older adults to live independently. The vast majority of older adults – nearly 90%, according to AARP – choose to age in place in their homes and communities.
Successful community living requires access to medical and other essential services. While the health impact of reduced access to needed medical services is obvious (missed appointments, emergency hospital visits, lack of continual care), social isolation due to lack of transportation can have an equally negative effect on health and mental health.
Without accessible, reliable and affordable transportation, many more older adults could face the possibility of placement in a long-term care facility.
Transportation is one of the most common supports provided by family caregivers. In fact, 78% of caregivers provide or arrange for rides for their loved ones (National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP). In 2009, family caregivers provided 1.4 billion rides per year to older adults (AARP). Still, older adults who live a long distance from family or who need frequent rides (such as individuals receiving chemotherapy or renal dialysis) depend on more formal services to meet their needs.
Your agency will be one of the best home care options because you can provide all aspects of care in the home without transferring to another agency. Care Consistency is crucial to the patient and their families. The easier you can make it for them the more successful you will be.
