My mother-in-law is staying at a senior living center on Long Island. She is in need of frequent doctor visits. Our brother-in-law often has to leave work to take her to the doctor and waits through her appointments. Is there any kind of “service” for seniors that can drive her and also wait while she sees her doctors?
I would suggest looking into agencies that supply non-medical home companion services. There are many such agencies located right on Long Island. Why don’t you ask the director of your mom’s assisted living community for referrals and, as another idea, if any staff would work for you on their days off.
