Hello, I understand the special needs of families facing a medical crisis or the slow decline of an aging loved one. I took care of my mother during her decline with cancer, and I understand the stress and fatigue that all family members experience during this emotional time, and also the need to create quality time with the patient by just listening, laughing and sharing whatever they want or need to talk about. I can be available any day of the week, day or night. I can also assist your family with medical transportation, hospital sitter, and act as a keen advocate and liaison to be sure physicians, medications and insurance are accurately coordinated, relieving your family so everyone can be more relaxed and rested. I have empathy and a great ability to connect with people on any level. I want to help you during this special time. Please call on me if you would like to discuss your family’s needs. I can provide excellent references. Thank you, Susan

Looking for Affordable Senior Transportation?

GoGoGrandparent turns on demand transportation, like Lyft or Uber, into services that can be accessed and monitored without a smartphone.

If you or your loved one is no longer able to drive, there are personal transportation options through states programs, non-profits and private businesses. An example of a great option for senior transportation is Gogograndparent. They offer a convenient and affordable solution for seniors to get around. The safe transportation of seniors is very important, which is why Gogograndparent is one of our favorite services.

Did you know that one-half of Americans 65 and older do not have access to public transportation? And that more than half of all non-drivers 65 and older stay at home in a given day because they don’t have transportation options. Those in rural areas and small towns are particularly affected because the transportation options are limited.

But it’s important for seniors to remain mobile to keep their social independence with friends and family; to reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness, and many other life-prolonging benefits.

Is it Time to Stop Driving?

For some seniors the answer is obvious. They may be too visually impaired to continue driving.
Just consider these vision and driving facts:

  • Vision provides about 85% of information we need to make safe decisions when driving.
  • A 60-year-old requires 10 times as much light to drive as a 19-year-old.
  • A 55-year-old takes eight times longer to recover from glare than a 16-year-old.
  • Older drivers can take twice as long to distinguish the flash of brake lights as younger drivers.

A study of the problems seniors face with transportation was conducted by the Beverly Foundation in partnership with the U.S. Department of Transportation and the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. Seniordrivers.org summarized their findings with the following themes:

  • Seniors continue driving “as long as possible because they are unaware of, or do not believe they have, alternative means of transportation.”
  • Seniors “limit their driving or stop driving altogether because of functional difficulties.”
  • “By the time they stop driving, many older adults are so disabled that they are unable to use most public and para-transit systems.”
  • “Next to health, transportation is the most important issue for seniors.”

Types of Personal Transportation

Volunteer Driver Programs are usually faith-based or nonprofits with a network of volunteers who offer transportation to for shopping, recreation, doctor’s appointments and other needs. Reservations are required. Cost is minimal and sometimes free.

Para-transit Service: Private agencies provide transportation using minibuses or small vans to the elderly or those with disabilities.

Door-through-Door Service: Private agencies provide drivers who offer personal assistance (wheelchair help, help with bags, etc.) through a passenger’s door and on through the door of their destination and back.
