The Benefits of Escort Services for Medical Appointments

medical transportation As you age, you will find yourself going to the doctor’s office and various specialists more often than you used to. You may also lose your ability to drive due to a medical condition. When that happens, some people think they will be put in an assisted living facility, but this doesn’t have to be the case. If you live alone and can’t get to medical appointments, you can get escort services from Specialty Care Services.

You Can’t Always Count on Cabs and Public Transportation

Many elderly patients rely on public transportation or cabs to get to their medical appointments, but these methods of transportation aren’t always reliable. You may find yourself in a situation where the bus is running late, or it doesn’t run at the time you need it to make it to your appointment. You also may run into a situation where your cab driver does not show up on time.

Cab Drivers Don’t Have Medical Training

Other drivers may not know how to handle a situation like that.
