Frequently Asked Questions About Senior Transportation Services

Common questions our Austin-area agency is asked about transportation services for older adults.

When Should My Loved One Stop Driving?

When an older adult should stop driving  depends on a number of factors, including their physical and cognitive health, driving abilities, and overall safety on the road. While each individual is unique, there are some significant signs that it is time to stop driving:

  • A decline in physical health: If your aging loved one has experienced a significant decline in physical health, such as decreased mobility, weakened vision, or slower reaction times, it can impact their ability to drive safely, such as staying within lanes, maintaining proper speed, using turn signals, or reacting appropriately to traffic signs

I Can’t Get My Aging Parent to Surrender Their License. What Can I Do?

Encouraging an aging parent to surrender their driver’s license can be a sensitive topic. For many, giving up their driver license is a sign of a loss of independence or autonomy, and some older adults will refuse to give up driving even when they have increasing problems behind the wheel.

To have the discussion with your aging parent about giving up their license, start by having an open and honest conversation about your concerns for their safety and the safety of others on the road. Present objective information about older driver safety and potential age-related declines in driving abilities. Involving their doctor can provide an expert opinion and evaluation of their health and driving capabilities.

Offer alternative transportation options as a solution, such as senior transport services so that they can still maintain their mobility and quality of life.

If the Department of Transportation hasn’t placed any restrictions on your aging parent’s license,  the decision to surrender the license ultimately lies with your parents. Remember that it may take time for them to come to terms with the decision, so approach the situation with patience and understanding.

What are the Safest Transportation Programs For Older Adults?

Transportation options such as public transit, Lyft, Uber, and other ride-sharing services, or even volunteer drivers might be low cost, but can be high-risk for older adults. The safest, most reliable transport option for older adults is a service that is specifically designed for seniors. 

Does Heavenly Care Conduct Driving Record or Background Checks?

Absolutely. Our senior transportation caregivers must pass a multi-point background check–even more extensive than is required by state law. The safety of our clients is of utmost importance so only caregivers with additional clearance can provide transportation.
