Home Care Aide in Waco, TX
When your elderly loved one can no longer drive themselves for whatever reason, Comfort Keepers of Waco, TX can provide them with a home care aide who can provide a range of transportation services.
Waco, TX is a great place to live and a trendy place to retire or merely continue to age in place. The weather here is hot and dry in the summer and comfortable all winter long. The perfect climate for most seniors, but once an elderly person has to give up their driver's license for one reason or another, it doesn't matter how nice the weather is. Doing so can leave them feeling as if they have completely given up their independence. When you provide your loved one with a Comfort Keepers home care aide, they have someone they can count on to provide for their occasional transportation needs.
"But, Why Can't They Just Call a Cab?"
There are many reasons why you should never expect your elderly loved one to call a cab starting with cost and ending with risk. Have you seen how expensive taking a taxi can be? On top of this most seniors don't feel comfortable riding in a car with a complete stranger. Why would you want to put your loved ones through this when a home care aide can be there when needed to provide them with a ride to anywhere they need to go in town. There are of course other alternatives in Waco, but we do offer a full range of transportation options for you to choose from.
Transportation Options Available in Waco, TX
Fixed Bus Routes – The buses only work if the bus stop is close to your loved one's home and the routes go where they need to go. Along with this, even the buses that kneel can be hard for a senior to board.
Silo District Trolley – The trolley only runs through the downtown on a loop, and you must be able to flag it down and get on and off safely. This makes it almost impossible for any senior who is unsteady on their feet.
Taxis, Uber, Lyft – All of these services offer door to door services, but the costs tend to add up quickly. Most of them aren't equipped to deal with seniors who have disabilities.
When you want the best possible transportation services for your elderly loved one, the answer is a home care aide from Comfort Keepers of Waco, TX.
