Blazing Star Personal & Senior Concierge Service
Errands & Transportation
Those new dings and dents on your aging parent’s car may leave you wondering if your parent should still be driving. The damage may be a sign that driving safely is becoming an issue due to vision problems, delayed reaction time or confusion. Other warning signs include traffic violations, parking tickets, accidents, getting lost, losing keys or running out of gas. Feeling suspicious, you may have gauged your aging parent’s competency behind the wheel by spending time in the passenger seat while your parent drove. Before your parent’s driving gets seriously erratic, it’s important to have a serious talk about hanging up the keys. Before you broach the subject, it’s best to have good alternatives in mind, such as the senior care errand assistance offered by Blazing Star.
Blazing Star Senior concierge assists our clients by helping them do what they are too busy or unable to do themselves. As seniors age, they develop health and mobility issues, and have to turn over many tasks, like running errands, grocery shopping, home care, household management, pet care and even personal transportation.
Your aging parents will likely feel reluctant to give up the independence that driving offers, but the good news is Blazing Star elderly transportation assistance means they can still run errands, go to doctor’s appointments and visit with friends and family—all without getting behind the wheel. If your parent would prefer reading a book or gardening versus running errands, that’s possible, too, through Blazing Star senior care errand assistance.
Picking up prescriptions. Going grocery shopping. Standing in line at the post office. Returning an overdue library book. Taking the car in for an oil change. Errands can turn into a never-ending list of chores that can overwhelm an aging parent, especially one with transportation problems. Our concierge can provide senior home care errand help–while your parent enjoys time in the garden or reading a good book.
