The Importance of Senior Transportation Services
Many older adults find themselves unable to drive anymore. Slower reflexes and worsening eyesight may prevent them from confidently taking the wheel. Additionally, driving can be fraught with danger for those with memory problems, such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. However, at times, friends and family members may not be able to drive their loved ones around, making trips to the grocery store, doctor’s appointments, and other errands less likely. In time, the inability to drive can lead to worsening physical, mental, or emotional health.
