Home & Health Services offers senior transportation options that are easy and convenient. While transportation is not specifically in-home care, we know that it plays a vital role in your health, as does medication assistance and blood pressure monitoring. Easy access to transportation keeps you connected to the community, allowing you the freedom and independence to do the things you want to do. Plus, you need an option when family members are not available to provide a ride to an appointment or shopping.
Home & Health’s Transportation Services are offered to residents living on the Meth-Wick campus and clients still residing in their Cedar Rapids area home. Two transportation choices are available: a standard vehicle and our handicap accessible, state-of-the-art Mobility Van. Home & Health Services even offers out-of-town transportation service.
If you are in a wheelchair, the Home & Health Mobility Van can take you where you need to go. The Mobility Van is small, quaint and operated by Home & Health’s trained and qualified staff.
“It’s great that we are more than just a transportation service,” says Sandi Lafferty, Home & Health operations manager. “The people we transport know us, and there is a feeling of trust and appreciation.”
Availability and Scheduling
Mobility Van and Car Transportation Services can be scheduled between the hours of 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily, seven days per week. Call Home & Health at (319) 297-8611 to schedule your transportation needs.
