The Holiday Season is upon us. Some Americans may be sticking to tradition and are travelling to their hometowns to visit friends and loved ones. But there are a few who have opted out of the tradition. With COVID-19 still posing a huge threat to our health and overall safety, many people have decided to stay home and celebrate with loved ones online, which is a safe alternative to a full-out get-together.
However, for seniors living independently at home, there may be a few more things to check off the list.
Seniors living alone, especially those diagnosed with chronic conditions and disabilities, are more at risk of experiencing weather-related accidents such as slips and falls than any other person.
We at Good Hands Medical Transportation LLC, a licensed provider of medical transportation in Houston, Texas, advise clients to do the following to keep their loved ones safe during the winter.
- Book a professional to regularly shovel snow and remove ice from your senior’s driveway, sidewalk, porch, etc. to protect them from slips and falls.
- Make sure to arrange proper transportation for your seniors to help them get to appointments, grocery stores, pharmacies, etc.
Don’t leave your loved ones unprotected this Christmas time — get them reliable non-emergency medical transportation in Texas today.
