Getting you to where you need to go

Whether it is for a one-off event, or a regular activity, a care worker can help with your transportation needs. Even if you still drive, it might be helpful to have someone else do the driving for greater convenience.

Transportation is available for people who are aged, disabled or recovering from an accident or injury and need a little assistance getting around. Transportation is provided by the care worker in their own car or if you prefer, they can drive your car.

The convenience of transportation

Having a care worker to drive could be of assistance when:

Going out at night

Driving longer distances or to unfamiliar places

Going to medical appointments or a shopping centre and getting dropped off out front

Not wanting the hassle of driving into “the city”

Get an escort on outings

If you already have a loved one who can drive you where you want to go, a care worker could still go along and assist with

Carrying the shopping

Waiting with one person while the other parks the car

Running inside for a quick errand while you wait in the car

Remembering where the car was parked

Providing companionship while out
