Choice Care, a home care provider based in Blackburn, has launched a new scheme to give the people it looks after greater freedom to travel.
The new scheme, named Freedom Buddies, aims to bridge the gap between public transport and social care services, enabling clients to attend health appointments and social occasions, such a wedding or theatre trip.
Clients using the service are picked up from their home by a care professional, who then drives them to their destination and stays with them to assist with any requirements.
Choice Care, which has been operating for 20 years, said its new fleet of company cares are fully insured and wheelchair accessible.
“Freedom Buddies is a wrap around, safe care and support service enabling people to go out accompanied by a trained, qualified and experienced care professional in a company owned car,” company bosses said.
