Assisted Transportation is provided to seniors 60 and older who need to be accompanied by someone to medical appointments.
Currently the senior must also qualify to be a Care Coordination client and unable to go to medical appointments alone.
Assisted Transportation provides a Certified Nursing Assistant, CNA, to assist the person to the vehicle, drive them to the appointment and drive them home. The CNA will see that the person gets back into his/her home safely. The CNA will ensure that the senior understands what their physician needs them to do. The CNA can also pick up any prescription medication from the pharmacy and ensure that the person understands how it should be taken.
