Thanksgiving Travel Assistance and In Home Senior Care
It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is already just around the corner. It feels like we just put away our Jack-o-lanterns and packed away the Halloween costumes. Before we know it, Christmas will be on the horizon!
Thanksgiving is a holiday that centers primarily on gratitude and family. It is a wonderful time of year to really celebrate our loved ones and is a large traveling holiday for most of the country. This is the time of year when we appreciate having many of our family members together to enjoy a homemade feast. You may have an elderly loved one who has a bit of difficulty with driving due to poor eyesight or medications that may make operating a vehicle more complicated. During the holidays, it comes as no surprise that you would want your elderly loved ones to attend the festive meal if at all possible.
If you find that you are unable to provide the transportation to the family meal for your elderly loved one, there are options. Senior Helpers of Bloomington, Minneapolis, Eden Prairie, Saint Paul, Minnetonka, Lakeland, and White Bear Lake, Minnesota can provide the transportation to and from these holiday events that surround Thanksgiving. Transportation services are also very helpful for the upcoming shopping season. You won’t have to worry how your loved one will arrive and how they will return to their home. You can trust that a professionally trained and compassionate caregiver will provide door-to-door service to make sure your loved ones are safe at all times.
This generation of seniors tend to be more active within their community than older generations. They may have weekly gatherings they love to attend. Choosing to live in and receive care in their own home shouldn’t have to mean they have to suffer from cabin fever. You may want to help out and make sure that your loved one is safe when traveling, especially during the busy holidays. This may be difficult if you live a long distance from you elderly loved one.
