Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and as it gets nearer, we all find ourselves asking, “What do I get mom for mother’s day?!” While many people opt for a traditional gift, such as flowers or candy, plenty of us look to buy our moms practical gifts that will actually come in handy. When you think of gifts that serve a purpose, you might think of appliances or household items, but what about something that’ll help her get around in her day-to-day activities?
If your mother is a senior citizen, it’s likely that she may have stopped driving. Many seniors who decide to give up driving wind up relying on friends and family to get around from point A to point B, but in doing so often feel like they’ve given up some of their independence.
Transportation is crucial for everyone, no matter how old you are, because we all have things to do, places to go, and people to see. The idea of being completely dependent on someone else in order to accomplish your daily tasks is something that many people fear as they get older.
At All Island Transportation, we have a number of regular senior customers who use our taxi services to get around. From doctor’s office visits to beauty parlor appointments, or from grocery shopping to meeting with friends for lunch, our drivers are able to accommodate seniors to ensure all their transportation needs are met. We also offer wheelchair accessible taxis.
Being able to hire a reliable company to drive you where you need to go provides the safe transportation that seniors require, while allowing them to maintain their independence in going about their daily business without relying on a friend or relative.
So while you’re looking for that perfect, practical gift for mom this Mother’s Day, think about giving her the gift of independence. Encourage her to take control of her daily agenda, and empower her as the strong woman you know her to be.
