Transportation Services

Senior transportation is vitally important to maintaining independence and health. Whether it is a follow-up doctor’s appointment, visiting friends or family, or just a casual outing, seniors need reliable transportation. We have joined Lyft to provide an easier solution for seniors on the go. Maintaining independence and mobility go hand in hand. Through our partnership with Lyft, an on-demand ride-sharing service, we have expanded our range of services to offer affordable transportation.


Right at Home Palm Beach is proud to announce that we have been selected as a Caring Star of 2022 for providing excellent home care services in Palm Beach. This marks another year that Right at Home Palm Beach has received this award from, a trusted senior care resource for many families throughout the country.

How It Works?

Our Rides at Home service is easy and simple:

  • Call our office to set up your ride
  • Arrange - tell us where you want to go, and we’ll plan with Lyft
  • Pick Up - the Lyft driver will pick you up and take you to your destination
  • Save - rides are automatically charged to your invoice

With this option, seniors feel more empowered because they have the freedom to schedule rides whenever they want.

All Lyft drivers must pass rigorous background checks and vehicle inspections. For those who need room for a wheelchair or use a walker, we can request a driver with a safe and accessible vehicle. For extra security, our offices always monitor the driver’s location.

Elderly and Disabled Transportation Assistance Services

Studies have shown that some seniors miss doctor’s appointments or avoid making them because they do not have a way to get there. As part of our elderly companion care and senior personal care services, our caregivers are all licensed and insured that obey all traffic laws and rules of the road.

Senior Non-Emergency Medical Transportation

Non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) offers seniors low-cost transportation options when they don’t have direct access. NEMT programs were created due to growing unmet needs of those without a license, not having a working vehicle, or not being able to drive due to medical issues.

Differences in Transportation

How Private Transportation Can Help Your Loved One
Private Transportation
Although public transportation is a good option for seniors in good health, it does have limitations for seniors who might not be in the best medical and physical health. Getting to and from public transportation will require walking, in some cases in bad weather. Those with doctor’s appointment may also face some difficulty as they must plan their trip around the buses schedule. With our private transportation services, seniors have the freedom to choose where they want to go, when they want to go. Seniors enjoy safe and reliable transportation with trained and professional caregivers.
Public Transportation
Public transportation provides many people the ability to travel where they want and when they want. It provides seniors a low costly, in some cases free, means of transportation. Public transportation includes city buses, trains, trolleybuses, subways, and ferries. In Palm Beach County, a popular public transportation option is the Palm Tran. Under their “Seniors in Motion” program, seniors can enjoy easy and convenient transportation for only $1.00. The Florida Department of Elder Affairs recommends using Find A Ride Florida, a service created by Florida Senior Safety Resource Center. It provides access to a growing database of transportation resources available in the area.
Emergency Transportation
Emergency transportation is used for severe medical symptoms or needs. This may include a stroke or heart attack, traumatic brain injury, or a serious event such as a car accident.
Non-Emergency Transportation
Non-emergency transportation is typically used for non-severe medical needs such as getting to a doctor's appointment or picking up a prescription.

"The girls who have been here have been very good. I've been able to get away for awhile and do some things that I wanted to do. It gives me a break and the caregivers who come in have been very kind and helpful to my husband. They seem to be interested, caring, and kind individuals. They were always willing to do some extra things too. They take for a walk, watch him so he doesn't fall, prepare meals, and do light housekeeping. They tell me what they have done while I've been gone, showing kind acts, looking out for my husband, and being generally a good person conversing with my husband. They are very competent and gives me the information when I ask for it. The girls who have been here have been very capable and do everything that is necessary."
