Driving is not ideal for most seniors. As such, availing of professional transportation services is imperative to get your senior from one destination to another without difficulty.
Tabitha Medical Care offers quality transportation services that aim to transfer our clients to their different appointments and errands in safety. Our medical clinic in Laurel, Delaware, helps clients to have easy and affordable access to transportation services, especially for people who have no vehicular means to get to their preferred destination.
Transportation offered by our medical care in Delaware is beneficial for:
- Increasing transportation accessibility
- Avoiding missing clinical schedules
- Decreasing the effect of chronic diseases
- Reducing the cost of inpatient services
- And much more
Even if your senior is still fit to drive, they are still at risk of vehicular-related accidents. The open road is very unpredictable; every day is never the same, and we should take that into consideration. Your senior loved one should quit driving, especially if they continue to experience the following:
- Stiff joints and muscles
- Poor eyesight
- Poor hearing
- Slower reaction time
- Slower reflexes
If they take certain medications that may affect their driving
To know whether or not your elderly loved one is fit to drive, make sure to get in touch with our patient care services or with an occupational therapist. You can ask us for advice on any health problems or medications that might make it unsafe for mom or dad to drive. Together, we can make a plan to help them keep driving and decide when it is no longer safe to drive.
