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.

These Are Some Reasons To Book A Car Service For A Family Member's Funeral

Transportation is one topic that you'll have to consider after a loved one passes away. Many funeral homes can provide you and your family with transportation from the funeral home to the burial site, but this might not always suit you. For example, some people don't favor the flashiness of riding in a limousine during this solemn occasion, while others may have purchased a low-cost funeral package from the funeral home that doesn't include transportation. Instead of driving in your own vehicle, it's worthwhile to consider booking a car service. There are many varied reasons that a car service can suit this scenario, including the following.

Safer When You're Distraught

Driving while you're emotional and distraught is not a good idea. Given that you likely won't be in a calm emotional state on the day of your loved one's funeral, it's ideal if you don't get behind the wheel. Instead, you can have a car service pick you and any other family members at your homes and drive you to the funeral home. There, the car service driver can wait for the service to end, and then provide you and your loved ones with transportation to the burial site. At the end of that ceremony, the driver can take you safely back home again.

Offers An Understated Look

One of the benefits of hiring a car service is that you have several types of vehicle to consider riding in. While many car services offer limos, they also offer vehicles that are understated. If you're the type of person who considers a limo to be too flashy for a funeral, you can select any number of other options. A town car, for example, is a classy way to travel for this solemn occasion, but doesn't have the same flashiness as a limo. If you want to travel with a significant number of family members, a full-sized van is another option that many car services can provide.

No Fussing Over Directions And Traffic

No one wants to worry about navigating the route and dealing with traffic and detours on the day of a loved one's funeral. Even if you're emotionally comfortable enough to drive, it can be stressful to make the trip from your home to the funeral home if you're unfamiliar with the route or if there's often heavy traffic in the area. When you hire a car service, the driver will always pick you up early enough that you can reach your destination comfortably on time.
