We accompany you to appointments and assist along the way.
Making an appointment is easy, but sometimes the logistics can be a hassle. For some of our clients, the problem is transportation – they can’t drive because of their age or a disability or injury. They want something more personal than a taxi, van, or limousine service but don’t need a medical-transportation service or ambulance.
But for many of our clients, transportation is only part of the problem. They also need assistance once they get to the destination – finding the office inside the building, completing paperwork during check-in and check-out, and getting out of the building and home safely.
We also have clients who are undergoing an outpatient procedure and need a designated driver to provide transportation after the procedure. Most physicians and dentists will not begin an outpatient procedure that involves sedation unless the patient has a designated driver with them at the time of check-in who will remain in the office throughout the procedure.
Many of our clients previously relied on family and friends for help with these logistics. But sometimes clients either don’t have a local family member or friend to help, or don’t want to bother them or work around their schedules. And some of our clients are attending appointments they would prefer to keep private, such as cosmetic medical procedures or a trip to a lawyer.
Our clients are delighted to find that we offer a comprehensive solution that will allow them to independently attend to any type of appointment, anytime, anywhere.
Discrete and Confidential
Many of our clients prefer not to seek the help of family or friends because they are attending appointments they would rather keep confidential. We have helped clients who were undergoing outpatient cosmetic procedures or other personal medical procedures who did not want to involve a family member or friend in the process. We have also helped seniors who were privately meeting with financial advisors or attorneys regarding matters they wanted to keep confidential. We can provide transportation and (if requested) assistance throughout such appointments confidentially and discretely, to give clients true independence and privacy.
With Appointment Companions, clients can book their appointment at a time that is convenient for them, without bothering family or friends or having to work around someone else’s schedule.
Complete Service Throughout Your Appointment
Unlike a taxi or limousine service, we not only drive clients to their destination, we get them through the entire appointment comfortably and peacefully. We make sure that they get to the right office and get through check-in and check-out without a problem.
For our clients who have problems communicating because of physical or cognitive disabilities, we stay in touch with a designated friend or family member throughout the appointment. If requested, we can put the family member on the phone to communicate directly with the client’s doctor, lawyer, or advisor during the appointment.
