Senior transportation is an area you might think has minimal options, and if you find yourself in a transitional care phase, you may be considering what these options are. If you are unable to drive yourself, senior transportation is essential, especially if you have to attend doctor visits, need to make a trip to the grocery store, or want to get out of the house. Luckily for you, there are options available!

CaraVita Home Care would like to provide you some tips to help you better adjust to the caregiving journey.
Every week I get asked at least one time, “Beth, can you help me convince my mom to move into assisted living?” Another thing I hear regularly is “I am so frustrated with my mom. Dad has died, and she fell last week. I do not understand why she does not see the need for me to help her get some help in the home? What is wrong with her?”

At CaraVita Home Care, we understand the importance of having the most exceptional health care possible. Figuring out the most viable health care option can be overwhelming, especially for seniors dealing with doctor appointments alone. Getting involved in an elderly loved one’s health care shows support and increases their overall health. It is okay if you don’t know all of your loved one's medical conditions; you’ll learn more while researching the best care options for them over time.
We’re delighted to announce that we have received the 2019 Best of Home Care – Provider of Choice Award from Home Care Pulse!
