When individuals reach the stage in their life when they consider independent senior living, one of the most important issues is transportation. For many of us, mobility is a matter of pride. We want the freedom to go where we want when we want. However, in retirement, travel can be a challenge. Thus, Northfield transportation services make it a point to provide residents with the resources they want and need. This allows residents to shop, explore, be active and engage in activities, and visit friends and family hassle-free. At Northfield, our transportation services are just one more way we ensure residents live worry-free and can live the life in retirement that they most desire.
Importance of Northfield Transportation Services
Lack of transportation is a regular reason why seniors become disconnected from their family and community. Perhaps due to medical issues or just comfort, independent seniors aren’t able to drive as much as they used to. However, they still need to make it to doctor appointments, go grocery shopping, and get out into the world. Human beings are social creatures after all, and being able to be around others is necessary for good health and wellness.
Socially isolated seniors, whether in need of care or independent like those living at Northfield, need to stay engaged and active. Often isolation leads to poor mental health as well as poor physical health. For example, isolation from friends and family can lead to:
- Heart and blood pressure issues
- Immune system issues
- Cognitive decline
Thus, Northfield transportation services step in to prevent this.
Taking You Where You Want to Go
At Northfield, it doesn’t matter if you’ve given up driving or not. We can set up the services you need when you need them to get to where you want to be. While our newly renovated facility provides nearly everything independent seniors need, we understand that a change of scenery is always necessary from time to time. Therefore, we offer regular activities not only at Northfield but off facility grounds. Our staff organizes and provides transportation to events lifting the worry and effort from our residents. However, not everyone wants or needs organized group activities. Sometimes, we just want to shop by ourselves, go to a game with other friends or family, or get to the airport. Northfield transportation services are here for residents. We can schedule transportation and get our residents to all the places they wants to go.
Thus, seniors at Northfield are truly independent, able to stay well-provisioned, and plugged into what is happening in the world. There’s no reason for independent seniors to just want for people or the world to come to them. They expect to be able to go out and do what they want. Northfield’s goal is to make sure residents get where they are going and can return home whenever they want. We’re here to meet your needs.
