Collecting & Escorting
Picking up prescriptions and pensions or making it to appointments can be a big drain on your time and energy so we provide some extra help.
Taxis and buses are a good way to get around but if you suffer a particular condition or are prone to tripping or falling it can create some extra confidence and comfort going out if an experienced carer is with you. Our team receive ongoing training in helping people get around safely and helping them cope with the effects of conditions such as dementia, muscular dystrophy and Parkinsons, so whatever your requirements our team can provide the extra help you need.
Picking up prescriptions and pensions
Much like our shopping service we provide flexibility and can simply accompany you to pick things like prescriptions and pensions up, or do all the collecting and waiting around in queues for you, tied in with shopping or any of our other services.
Escorting you to general appointments
Make sure you get there safely and on time with someone who understands exactly how much help you need; we can take you to doctor’s appointments, the bank, the Post Office or even just to meet or visit friends, we’re there to help you get around!
Escorting you to the hospital
Hospital appointments can make life even more difficult with long waiting time an all too common problem. If you need support getting to and from the hospital we can lighten the load on your family by getting you there on time, waiting until your appointment is over and then getting you home safely.
