Transportation can be a challenge for seniors citizens who no longer drive. I know that Seniors Helping Seniors offers flexible transportation options to its clients so I asked Jim Watkins, owner of the Central Virginia location of Seniors Helping Seniors, to describe the transportation services his company offers:
“My company, Seniors Helping Seniors, is designed to provide non-medical, in-home care for Seniors who need some assistance in order to stay in their own homes, as long as possible. These services include, but are not limited to, companion care, cooking, cleaning, laundry, yard work, light maintenance and transportation.”
“I have discovered that the transportation part is very popular – and helpful – because of lost driving privileges or family, friends and neighbors aren’t always able to help. A large percentage of this transportation that Seniors Helping Seniors provides is of the last minute variety and we are more than happy to help. Because all of our providers are Seniors, too, they have a much more flexible schedule and are able to supply the necessary transportation on a moment’s notice.”
“I am proud to say that I do much of this myself. Since Seniors Helping Seniors requires only a two hour minimum, it is perfect for the time frame of most doctor visits. Should you need this type of last minute transportation, the Seniors Helping Seniors office number is 434-990-0145.”
