Request Description

I think one issue elderly people face is transportation.  Lots of elderly people cannot or do not drive.  They need rides back and forth to doctor visits and even to the store to buy things they need such as food and personal items.  If the elderly person does not have family willing to bring them, they have no way to get there.

     Another issue the elderly might face is having someone to help them with task they cannot do for themselves around the house.  Just the other day my husband’s grandmother needed help moving some furniture in her house.  My husband went over there to do it for her, but if an elderly person did not have someone to help them they may hurt themselves trying to do it alone.

     Last issue I believe the elderly face is loneliness.  If an elderly person’s spouse has died it could be very lonely for the widower.  Even if they have family that visits them occasionally, sitting in his or her home could be very depressing.

     There is something here called the Council of Aging which will pick up elderly people and bring them to places they need to go.  Other then that service, there is not any services to help with the other two issues.  It is probably hard to find someone who would be willing to do the other two issues.  I would not have a problem doing it but not all people are the same.
