Is your senior having a hard time keeping their balance? Do you see them having a hard time waiting for the bus or they look uncomfortable sitting in your car? This could be some telltale signs that they need a professional to help them during their trips. The good news is, there are a number of medical transportation services that you can choose from nowadays.
But if you are not yet sure to get one or not, you may have to check whether the two symptoms discussed below is evident among seniors:
- They already have poor balance and weaker muscles
One reason why most seniors would opt to get non-emergency transportation services is that they are not physically able to endure long and uncomfortable rides anymore. Imagine letting our senior patients ride a bus or even a taxi for so long. They could be standing and pushing the crowd or worse they could be left injured from such uncomfortable position.
As we age, our feet may not be able to withstand the bus rush nor are we comfortable sitting in a taxi for so long with our legs being cramped up. The solution to such dilemma is to find a transportation service provider that can accommodate the needs of our seniors and to give them a comfortable ride.
- Public vehicles just do not suit them anymore
Buses, trains, and other public means of transportation entails that you have to wait in the long queue and endure standing for a long time until the passengers lessen. This means you have to have enough strength and good muscle coordination in order to survive this daily struggle.
