Whether it is a trip for a doctor’s appointment, an outpatient procedure, the grocery store, or relocating to a local or out-of-state independent living, assisted living or memory care center, there are many locations where seniors need to go to stay independent and active in their community.

Let’s dive into what this means for you and your loved ones.

Local Transportation Services for Florida Seniors

Navigating city streets to get to appointments and rehab centers can be challenging for anyone – particularly seniors. Many seniors no longer drive. And others would rather not drive if they had a better alternative.

Senior Transportation services are tailored to make these journeys comfortable, safe, and stress-free. With professional drivers trained in senior care, they ensure accessibility and personalized care with every trip.

Long-Distance Transportation Services: A Personal Touch

Seniors often decide to relocate to Florida to avoid harsh winters, enjoy nicer weather, and have a more active, social lifestyle. With hundreds of options for retirement, independent living, and assisted living communities, moving to Florida is often a great choice. 

In other cases, the best option for a senior is to relocate closer to their family members. Seniors may want to spend more time with loved ones, or a family member may want to care for them as they age.

Imagine a senior in Maryland who wants to relocate to a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in Sarasota, Florida to live a maintenance-free life. Or, imagine a senior parent in assisted living in Fort Myers, Florida, ready to move to an assisted living community in New York, closer to their adult children and grandchildren. 

The thought of such journeys can be overwhelming for the seniors and their families. Transportation and logistics involving airports and flights are difficult enough for the everyday traveler. It can be even more challenging for seniors, many of whom are in need of medical and mobility assistance.

That’s where long-distance Senior Transportation service comes in.

Florida Senior Consulting Advisors can help assisted you with long-distance moves to senior living communities.
