Transportation

Sometimes a senior may be able to take care of most of their needs, but may not be safe to drive. We can refer caregivers that will transport to Dr. Appts, Hairdresser, Grocery Shopping, Pet Groomer, the Airport,  or any place you or your loved one needs to go. Caregivers can drive the client’s car or their own car and we verify that the caregiver has auto insurance and we run checks on their driving records.

We Provide Wheelchair and Stretcher Transportation

 

Transporting a loved one in a wheelchair can sometimes be a  challenge. Let us help! An Answer to Care provides quality non-emergency transportation for people with limited mobility. Our wheelchair vans are equipped with an extra wide wheelchair ramp that can accommodate both manual and electric wheelchairs. We provide door to door service by caring drivers that are CPR Certified. Our drivers undergo a criminal background screening and driving history check. Passengers are welcome to ride along with the person being transported and we have plenty of room for bags, groceries, or belongings. If you or your loved one needs transportation to dialysis, physician appointments, airports, social outings, dinner, etc, call us to schedule a pickup! Providing advance notice will help us to best accommodate you. We also provide Stretcher Transportation for those who can not comfortably travel in a wheelchair. We offer Stretcher Transports home from the hospital, to dialysis or to medical appointments in our Stretcher Van.

 

Respite Care

Caring for a loved one is a commitment that makes many demands on the Individual providing the care. Sometimes, you just need a break. When that time comes, we offer respite care so we can take over for you and give you the time you need to tend to your own needs. Respite care can be anywhere from a couple of hours a week, to around the clock care for a vacation. Whatever the need, we are here to help.
