Personalized Accompaniment Including Transportation

According to statistics one in five seniors over 70 stops driving mostly because of health concerns. Some of them are forced to stay at home on any given day because they have no transportation options.

Unlike public transportation Driving Miss Daisy offers “Through-The-Door” service with personal assistance helping clients out of their home and through the door of their destination, and back. Our unique service meets the needs to safely transport seniors, people with disabilities, children and those with special needs to and from all kinds of medical and dental appointments, pre- and post-surgical appointments, adult day programs, work, school, social events, travel, and more.

We schedule our trips in advance, so our clients can be assured their driver will be there for them on time.

“Stay with” service

There are many medical problems that seniors may be experiencing as they age. They are simply anxious about going to the doctor's office because of the fear of the unknown, such as the confirmation of an incurable disease, terminal illness, or feelings of embarrassment due to specific medical conditions, etc. (Dr. Charles J. Sophy, MD , Adolescent Medicine)

How often we hear: can you stay with me during the appointment? Can you stay with my Mom and help her during the appointment? Yes, we can!

Our clients can put trust in our personalized Driving and “Stay With” Service. We will pick up our client from home, drive to the appointment, and assist during the appointment, communicate with the Dr. Office staff, take notes, if needed, and email a report about the appointment to the family.

We will provide companionship during the appointment and take our client home after. We provide safe driving, escort and assistance to our clients for religious services, social events and recreational outings, shopping and errands, etc.

Travel Assistance

Traveling could be a very exciting but also exhausting experience for anyone, even more for seniors. Seniors may suffer added stress while traveling, including getting to and from the airport, ferry terminals, bus and train stations.

Quant Care/Driving Miss Daisy Team can assist our clients in different ways to reduce unhealthy travel stress. We will assist with trip preparation like packing according to travel by air or ground standards, checking all travel documents, insurance and medication.

Dementia Care

A predictable routine can prevent a person with dementia from becoming distracted and forgetting what they were doing. A daily agenda that resonates with the pre-dementia life of a client can improve the quality of life.

Quant Care/Driving Miss Daisy Team along with the caregiver will establish a daily routine and will try to follow this routine as much as possible. The routine will include: mealtimes, toileting, medication administration, personal hygiene, leisure activities, exercise and outings and will be based on the person’s likes, dislikes, strengths, abilities and interests.
