Healthcare Visit Companion

Elderbridge Alliance Healthcare Visit Companions  is an Iowa elder care service where we accompany you to medical appointments and provide complete service through your entire visit

When you, or someone close to your senior, can’t be there, our Healthcare Visit Companions will assist you with the check-in/out process, navigating within the facility, and completing paperwork. As part of this Iowa elder care service, we will take notes and stay in touch with your family throughout the appointment. If needed, we can put your family member on the phone to communicate directly with your medical provider. We will listen to your concerns and help you prepare questions about your elderly loved one so you get the clearest understanding of the situation from the healthcare provider. Elderbridge Alliance Healthcare Visit Companions are much more than just a taxi or designated driver service that you may associate with other Iowa elder care services. We will drive your loved one to their appointment and assist 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 with no problems.

For our clients who have difficulty 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 or healthcare provider during the appointment.

If you must undergo an outpatient procedure which does require a designated driver to provide transportation, we will drive you safely to and from your appointment, remain at the office throughout the procedure. We will also review the doctor’s aftercare instructions with you and make sure you have all the information you need before leaving.

We can assist with the following:

  • Coordinate and accompany you to any type of medical appointment
  • Doctor appointments
  • Dental appointments
  • Outpatient cosmetic procedures
  • Colonoscopies, endoscopies, chemotherapy, dialysis, and other outpatient procedures and tests
  • Eye examinations
  • Trips to the pharmacy
  • Provide peace of mind by being available to your loved one when you can’t be there
  • Listen to your healthcare concerns and prepare you to discuss these with your doctor
  • Communicate with all involved family members and caregivers
  • Assure dignity, compassion and respect
  • Assure confidentiality and HIPAA compliance in all medical related matters

Elderbridge Alliance staff are not limited to being consultants and companions. It’s our goal to make sure that you are completely informed where the care of your elderly loved ones is concerned. We will make sure you are always up to date with their latest healthcare developments and treatments.

Let Elderbridge Alliance Healthcare Visit Companions provide the peace of mind, respect, dignity and compassion that you and your senior loved one expect and deserve.
