Learn about all the available senior transportation services in Richmond, Virginia, and how Executive Home Care of Richmond can help seniors get around.
Senior Transportation Services In Richmond Are More Important Than Some May Think.
Transportation services are important for every municipality. Unfortunately, public transportation is not always the top priority of city planners and councillors. Furthermore, cities grow, shrink, and change, and public transportation doesn’t always serve every community. Public transportation just isn’t easy to use for everybody.
This is especially true for seniors and people with disabilities. It’s not always easy for seniors to get around. The Greater Richmond Transit Company (GRTC) provides public bus service, but their routes are not exactly extensive. The bus routes generally don’t go beyond the city limits, with forays into Henrico and Chesterfield Counties that have limited schedules. Even if you live right in the heart of Richmond, that doesn’t mean you won’t have to walk for ten minutes or more to catch a bus. This can be real problem for the elderly and those with disabilities. Paratransit options are available, but these are not always convenient, either.
How Executive Home Care Of Richmond Helps Seniors With Transportation Services.
Executive Home Care of Richmond is dedicated to not only helping seniors live as healthily and safely as possible, but also to helping them maximize their independence. That’s why we have partnered with Lyft, the fastest growing on-demand transportation service in America. With Lyft, we can arrange quick, safe rides to virtually anywhere our clients would want to go in Richmond. Our clients can request rides at any time simply by calling the Executive Home Care office in Richmond.
Working with Lyft allows us to foster the highest level of independence and convenience for our clients as possible. Many of our clients choose to travel with their caregivers, while others are happy to travel alone. For additional protection, every Lyft driver must pass a background check, a vehicle inspection, and they must have a good driving record.
Partnering With Lyft Is Just One Of The Many Ways We Can Make Life More Convenient For Our Clients.
Whether you have mobility issues, live far away from a GRTC bus route, or you’re just not comfortable using public transit because of Covid-19, or any other reason, our senior transportation services can give you the freedom of movement you deserve. When it comes to errands, transportation services are not your only option, though. With our homemaking services, we can arrange for a caregiver to pick up medication, do the grocery shopping, or run other errands for you.
