Senior Transportation Services

Get Reliable Transportation for Doctor's Appointments, Filling Prescriptions, and Local Errands

Loved ones that receive home care assistance often require reliable transportation to keep up with weekly doctor appointments, picking up prescriptions, and running daily errands. Westchester Family Care offers transportation to seniors, in addition to home care services.


Most seniors want to live in the comfort of their homes for as long as possible, and we believe they deserve that opportunity. If you or your loved one needs assistance with non-emergency medical transportation, our New York Certified Home Health Aides can help.
