Senior transport to appointments
As we age, everyday tasks become more challenging. We may need assistance with personal care, medication management, meal preparation or transport getting to and from medical appointments.
Many people are unable to drive due to medical factors such as poor vision, or may no longer have the confidence to navigate traffic. Family members or friends may not always be available to assist.
If you have any doubts about a loved one attending important medical visits on their own, our reliable nurse assisted transport service is available seven days a week to help. We transport people from their homes or aged care facility.
Our service provides you comfort to know that your loved one is attending to their medical needs, follow-up appointments and recommended treatment or procedures as set out by their health specialists.
Our qualified nurses can liaise with doctors, specialists and health provider clinics to ensure ample time is scheduled to arrive at appointments on time. Our nurses remain with your loved one throughout the transport journey to ensure safe and supported travel and care.
The fully equipped, air-conditioned and specially modified vehicles and equipment offer comfortable travel, including for those people travelling in a wheelchair.
We operate our service line with the Aged Care and National Disability Services Standards. We have a COVID-19 safety plan and comply with all state and federal infection prevent and control measures.
