Elder Home Care Services for Incidental Transportation in Wichita, KS
Comfort Keepers elder home care services, including incidental transportation, allows Wichita, KS seniors to maintain their preferred routines, run errands, and remain social.
For many seniors, one of the biggest challenges of aging is giving up driving. Driving a car gives us an enormous amount of freedom, which is something we are not even aware of until we lose it. If your loved one can no longer safely drive a car, it is important for them to know that they have other options at their disposal that do not have to reduce their independence.
At Comfort Keepers of Wichita, KS, our elder home care services include incidental transportation, allowing seniors to maintain their preferred routines, run errands, and remain social. We know how important it is for seniors to stay active in their community and take care of their needs on their own. We can help your loved one achieve all of this and provide them with ample support in those areas they need help with.
With our incidental transportation service, your loved one can:
- Go shopping
- Run errands
- Go to a senior day center nearby

Your parent could do all of this with a taxi as well, but our caregivers bring a plethora of benefits to our clients, not just driving them to and from their desired destination but making sure they are safe and comfortable along the way.

Most importantly, as our elder home care services focus on the person, our caregivers can provide accompaniment, performing tasks together with your loved one and engaging them in meaningful conversation.
This way, your loved one can get a friend in their care provider, someone who will keep them company when they are going to the doctors, waiting in line at the post office or window shopping in the local mall.
