Transportation for the Elderly

Hi. My name’s Betty. I’m sixty-two years old and live with my husband, Matt. My mother lives on our property, but at age ninety-one still insists on living alone. Mom has a good mind and for her age does well physically. She drove up until four years ago when we all decided it would be best for her to not be behind the wheel. It’s worked out well with her living on our property. Matt or I would take her places. We made sure she had groceries, made it to doctors appointments, and to her social engagements. About six months ago, however, Matt fell ill and our lives changed. I am his full-time caregiver, and Matt can no longer drive. I had to find help for my Mom which was difficult to do. I am going to share what I found and hope it helps you should you ever need transportation.

Want To Use Shuttle Service To Get To The Airport? 3 Ways To Protect Your Valuables

Going on a flight and bringing luggage requires taking a small risk because it is possible for your items to get lost or stolen. It is important to take measures to protect your belongings, which is easier to do when you know that you will not be checking bags as what you are taking will stay within sight. But, this changes when you are bringing enough luggage that some of the bags need to be checked. An ideal situation is to invest in various solutions for the baggage itself, especially when you are going to get shuttle service.

Buy Brightly Colored Travel Gear

It is easy for bags to look similar or nearly identical to one another when there are no exterior details that differentiate luggage. You might like the idea of getting a black or gray suitcase, but you should consider purchasing brightly colored gear that allows your possessions to stick out in a crowd. This makes it easier to know which bag is yours when getting shuttle service that includes transport for other travelers. Then, once you get to the airport, you will be able to easily find your luggage from everyone else's.

Add Locks to the Suitcases

Another method that you can use to protect your items is by adding locks to the suitcases you bring along. Not only does this prevent people from being able to open them up when you are not there, but it stops the bag from accidentally bursting open and having some of the items fall out. This kind of issue might be fine when you are present because you can just pick everything up carefully and put it all back in. But, you might have trouble getting everything back if it happens on a flight or on a transfer to another plane.

Get Luggage Straps

Locks are certainly helpful, but you can also get luggage straps to maximize protection of your valuables. If you have a long shuttle drive from your house or pickup location to the airport, the luggage straps will guarantee that your bags do not open up, even if you forget to close them properly. You can even use this as an opportunity to get brightly colored straps for when you already have neutral-colored bags.

Taking a shuttle like Rochester Shuttle Express to the airport is a great way to avoid parking your vehicle there and paying a daily fee, and following these tips will have you feeling confident about luggage safety until you get home.
