Benefits of Remaining Independent and Mobile
Few people think about or plan for the day they turn in the keys, or have them taken away by family members. But each year, more than one million Americans aged 70 and up stop driving, thereby depending on others for transportation. More and more people are outliving the decision to stop driving by a decade or more, yet it is vitally important to remain independent and mobile.
Remaining mobile with a transportation service can help in the following ways:
- Older adults continue to be engaged in the outside world
- Older adults continue to support local economies; businesses retain valuable customers
- Helps people stay connected to friends, and community.
- Social interaction opportunities can protect against isolation, loneliness and depression
- Relieves adult children from the daunting challenge of transporting their elderly family members.
SeniorCare Experts PET service provides rides with door-to-door, arm in arm service to hundreds of local seniors each yea
