We’re welcoming brighter days while continuing to promote health and safety.
When an older adult hangs up their car keys for good, finding alternative methods of transportation is important. Maintaining independence requires having affordable options for getting to and from physician appointments, social outings, the grocery store, and more.
Because seniors don’t want to feel as if they are burdening adult children or other family members with frequent requests for transportation, it isn’t uncommon for adults who give up driving to become isolated. You can help avoid that by creating a list of reliable local transportation options.
Transportation Options That Help Seniors Stay Independent
While older adults who live in major metropolitan areas typically have a variety of transportation options, seniors who live in suburban or rural areas might have access to transportation solutions they aren’t aware of.
If the senior in your family has been considering a move to an independent or assisted living community, they’ll be interested to know that transportation services are a popular service for residents.
Sunrise Senior Living communities have regularly scheduled outings to shopping centers, grocery stores, pharmacies, and other area destinations. Personal transportation to and from physician appointments can also be arranged. Call the Sunrise community nearest you to learn more about our transportation options.
