LOCATION - SOLIHULL
My 90 year old mother has become very immobile during the pandemic. Her short term memory has also significantly deteriorated. My 88 year old dad does most of her care. I moved in during the pandemic to support care which was possible due to working from home. I am soon to return to working on site but will still live in for most of the week.
I recently took her to a hair appointment. The first since the second lockdown. The difference in her whole demeanour was massive. However, this is not considered a health or essential service for statutory transport purposes. I would like her to visit her hair stylist at least once a fortnight as it gave her such a lift - she was so communicative afterwards and seemed to have more energy.
I am struggling to find transport services so that we can book (and pay) for these trips. It would need to be a service we can trust where there is care to support her getting from the transport to the hair dressers. I know I would not be able to commit to driving her personally due to pressures of work so it would be a great relief to have some services recommended if, indeed, they exist. Thank you
