A New Transportation Service for Seniors Launches
CPR-certified drivers offer extra assistance
December 7, 2016 – (Bozeman, Mont.) – At a time when app-driven ride sharing services are all the rage across the U.S., and with Uber making headlines locally with its latest launch, a new transportation service is rolling out in our community that offers extra assistance to those who need help getting around.
First Choice Transportation, a division of First Choice Home Health, is now offering non-emergency transportation service in Gallatin County including Livingston, Belgrade, and Big Sky. First Choice Transportation offers personalized, convenient car rides for seniors and those in need of extra assistance, for example people who use a walker, cane, crutches, or foldable wheelchair.
“As Gallatin County continues to grow there is an increased need–beyond the public bus, shuttle, and taxis–for a transportation service that provides a customized level of care and attention to its clients,” says Norm Dreyer, owner of First Choice Transportation. “We are in the business of serving seniors and those with an injury or illness. So offering customized car rides to the community is a natural extension of the compassionate and top quality care we already provide.”
First Choice Transportation drivers are all CPR-certified, and trained to provide minimum to moderate transfer assistance for clients who need an extra hand. Drivers greet a client at the door of their pick-up location, then assist him or her to the car if necessary; they then help the client get settled safely inside or at the door of their destination.
Clients no longer have to wait for a scheduled shuttle service or use a taxi. Drivers can transport clients to doctor appointments, urgent care clinics, grocery store, errands, and pick up from the hospital emergency room. No distance is too far. Rates are comparable to a taxi service, and there is no additional charge for wait times 5 minutes or less.
