Your life is busy so you can’t always be there to accompany your loved one to doctor’s appointments, social outings or on errand runs. Hiring a Home Health Aide as an escort can provide them with a companion and a watchful eye to ensure they arrive at their destination safely, on time and that they don’t get lost or confused. Our aides will also encourage your loved one to get out of the house and into the community more often, helping to improve their well-being and mental alertness.
You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your loved one is remaining active and is under the watchful eye of a trained and compassionate companion.
Who Needs This Service
Individuals who are forgetful or who may get lost or confused when they are away from the familiar surroundings of their home will feel more comfortable when they are accompanied by a friendly aide. Also, seniors who are prone to losing items such as important medical documents needed for appointments may need an aide to carry and deliver those papers for them.
