Hiring Non-emergency Medical Vans for your domestic purpose

Old age or disability doesn’t really mean that you get relieved from daily household chores. Then of course many elders prefer to stay active by visiting the local grocery store or a friend’s place during weekends. This is quite a healthy practice to follow but the one aspect which might come in the way of planning an outing is the transportation issue. Those suffering from immobility due to old age or health problems don’t feel comfortable traveling in public transports. Using a car on a daily basis is surely not a cost-efficient idea, more so when you have to manage with limited income post retirement. 

 
Non-emergency medical transportation can offer a practical solution in such situations. The uniqueness about such transportation services is that their vans/cars are customized exclusively to comfortably fit the wheelchair/walker. Most of the service providers maintain a wide fleet of vehicles from which one can pick up the option that best suits his/her requirement. The non-emergency medical van can be hired not only for doctor’s visits but also for domestic purposes. Continue reading to know a few domestic purposes which are conveniently covered by non-emergency medical transports.

Visiting grocery stores or a market complex

Talk of domestic need and you just can’t ignore daily grocery shopping. Rather than using your own car, you can hire a customized non-medical van and fill it up with your grocery and household items. Shop the way you want without worrying about how to carry items to your place.

Dropping kids in school

This is another domestic chore which can be covered by non-emergency medical transportation. This being a daily requirement, the prudent approach would be to enter into a monthly arrangement with the service provider. This would help save cost and relieve you of the daily hassle of dropping kids to school.

Daily commute to the workplace

Your immobility is no excuse to reach the workplace late on a regular basis. One can comfortably travel to their respective workplace by entering into an arrangement with the provider of a non-emergency medical transport. If you are an elder planning post-retirement engagements, you won’t have to worry about regular commutation.

Visit to the doctor/ healthcare center

The most apt use of a non-emergency medical van is perhaps the time when you need to visit the doctor/therapist. You don’t have to worry about how to reach the place on time. Just place a call with the transport company and the car will be sent at precisely the time you want. In case the client is wheelchair bound or uses a walker, then the service provider takes care to send an appropriate vehicle.

Weekend trips

A pleasure trip with friends or family members to nearby retreats is a sure way to boost your energy level and rejuvenate you for the busy week ahead. Don’t let immobility come in the way of enjoying an active social life. Hire a non-medical transport and have a blast during weekends! 

Be sure to pick up a flexible service provider, who is willing to offer customized packages to match your specific domestic needs. This is probably the best way to fulfill your domestic responsibilities while enjoying every moment of it!

Has Age Affected Your Driving?

For almost everyone, driving is an essential part of life. The ability to go where you want, when you want to, is important, but perhaps even more so is the feeling of independence that it creates. As long as we feel we can function independently, we are strong and confident. Take away this feeling of independence, and we feel weakened and insecure because we are dependent on others to take us where we want or need to go. Buses, taxis, and subways may not be workable alternatives because of mobility or other age-related problems, and the passenger does not feel he’s in control he when he’s not driving. This is something that many seniors feel when they stop driving . While there is no defined age at which a person must stop driving, there is no denying that increasing years and health issues affect a person’s ability to drive. The eyesight, strength, and reflexes of an 80 years old are not the same as when he/she was 18. Going to the DMV and getting a driving license renewed

Is It Time To Stop Driving?

A major problem with advancing years is the increasing difficulty in driving. Vision issues, reflexes, pains and infirmities all collude to make this essential part of life increasingly difficult. Besides the practical problems that not driving presents, there is also the depression that often sets in as you feel that your freedom has been curtailed. Continuing to drive when it is no longer safe to do so because of age-related issues is one of the major causes of accidents among senior citizens.
