Arranging an activity for the citizens in an assisted living facility or senior center is one that involves attention and care. To begin with, it’s often an unusual occurrence, as most entertainment outlets for seniors in a home actually come to the location so you don’t have to transport residents (particularly those who aren’t able to get around easily). Once in a while, it is a treat for them to be able to get out and attend a performance or cultural event that cheers them up and provides a break from the everyday routine.
Coordinating transportation for a senior group needs special care because this isn’t something that happens regularly. This age group has special needs; sometimes there might be health or safety-related devices that needs to come along, and some other may need extra room on the bus. We think it would be a great option to look into and here’s why if you’ve never considered using a motorcoach for your senior group.
For beginners, some seniors that come and participate at the center are able to get themselves around easily. Others, however, are dependent on caretakers to take them places. Everybody will know when to be at the center for the scheduled transportation if you’ve posted a flyer that announces your upcoming activity. Those that can drive on their own can get to the center on their own, and then rest assured that they can relax while someone does the freeway driving. For sitters, an away venture can give time for a much needed break, and possessing the transportation handled is a great convenience.
With a senior group, there are a range of needs. Some individuals may require a walker to get around, while others may be confined to a wheelchair. As soon as you arrive at your destination, what they need is there as soon as the doors open.
Additionally, there are added conveniences onboard coaches. You can get a coach with individual reading lights so they can do that en route. If anyone gets sick or needs to use the restroom, having a bathroom on the bus is a great bonus.
As these factors illustrate, we think you’d be happy with a coach. Contact us today and we’d love to offer you a quote that is suited to your schedule and needs!
