The inability to drive can significantly impact comfort and independence during your senior life. Some seniors can drive to shop, visit loved ones, and do errands whenever they want. However, some seniors may no longer drive due to mobility, health, or vision impairments and rely on the assistance of friends, relatives, or trustworthy neighbors. You may be one of them, spending a lot of money on taxis or public transportation, but both options make loved ones nervous about your well-being and safety. How about comfort and care? You want to ride in comfort and the safe hands of caring drivers—not sharp breaks and sharp turns that can significantly increase discomfort.
If you need help moving around in your elderly age to run errands or get to medical appointments, Around the Sound can help. We have the most comfortable vehicles for seniors, equipped with adequate climate conditioning. This, coupled with the expertise of our drivers, will ensure your loved one enjoys the real feeling of comfort and care while being transported from one place to the other. We can help with Medicaid, Medicare, and insurance claims, too.
