How Access to Transportation Can Improve Quality of Life for Seniors

Ambulance Service Vs. Non-How Access to Transportation Can Improve Quality of Life for Seniors


Gaining independence by utilizing available resources

It’s important for seniors to have access to reliable and safe transportation. How exactly does access to transportation benefit the quality of life of our senior community?

Reducing Limitations 

Being without transportation can have a negative impact on the lives we lead. Seniors that are unable to drive themselves are more likely to miss vital appointments, procedures, or testing. 

Working with a safe, sanitized, reliable, and accessible transportation company will ensure that appointments are never missed and health is being maintained optimally.

A Sense of Freedom & Independence

When seniors are unable to drive themselves or their family and friends are unavailable to get them to their desired destinations, their quality of life can be negatively affected. This is especially true for individuals that use wheelchairs. It may be difficult to get supplies, make it to medical testing, and more. Working with a transportation company like HealthLift to get around town can make all the difference.

Giving Family and Caregivers a Break

Family members and caregivers are not always required when wheelchair transportation is needed. The current health crisis may also put them at risk when taking patients to their appointments, procedures, and more. Having another option like Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) will provide a great resource for those instances when help is unavailable.
