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.
The Australian government is urging all people with chronic health conditions not to neglect their health and see their general practitioner or specialist to manage their conditions. It is critical that people continue to manage their health throughout this health crisis, be it through the expanded telehealth network or in person.
In person appointments can be difficult for people who may have mobility restrictions or high medical needs.
Our Clever Care NOW patient transport service is available to take wheelchair or bed bound people to important medical and health appointments.
