If your parents or grandparents have given up the car keys, you may find yourself taking time off work to shuttle them to medical appointments, grocery shopping and other places. That can be tough when you need to save your sick days to tend to the rest of your family’s health needs.
Whenever your loved one needs to travel within the Northern Milwaukee area, we can help. Our incidental transportation services get your parents or grandparents where they need to go. Not only that, but our trained CAREGiversSM can even attend medical appointments and take notes, help with grocery shopping, and much more.
Escorted Transportation Activities & Benefits
Our professional CAREGivers don’t just drop off and pick up your elder family members from curbside to curb. Unlike Uber, Home Instead provides Escorted Transportation consisting of at least a 1-hour minimum hourly charge, plus a small fee per mile traveled. We help your loved ones get ready, accompany them and provide any assistance required at the destination. Then, everyone returns home safely and settles back in. Our CAREGivers will even put the groceries away.
Here are a few ways we can help your senior family members with incidental transportation services:
- Doctor’s appointments
- General shopping
- Grocery shopping
- Hairdresser/barber appointments
- Medical testing and outpatient procedures
- Prescription drop-off and pick-up
- Religious services, concerts, plays, lectures
- Special family events like weddings

If the service recipient cannot easily transfer in and out of a vehicle, our CAREGiver can even coordinate wheelchair van transportation, through Transtar Medical at 1-888-248-6992.
