Our drivers are companion care providers who are trained and equipped to assist elderly or disabled riders who can no longer drive or travel independently due to a medical or age-related issue. A Senior Runs companion driver always stay with, cares for and assist riders while out and about on a doctors’ visit, outpatient procedures (ex. eye surgery, colonoscopy, oral surgery etc.), grocery store run and a variety of family or social activities. This service is designed to provide companionship, comfort and a familiar face every step of the way while you travel.

Our companion drivers are available to provide services 24/7. However, we strongly encourage users to book services as far in advance as possible especially to ensure you get the companion driver you prefer. We always work hard to honor same day request, but it’s not guaranteed as frequent users of our services tend to book drivers months in advance.
Our service is not limited to only transportation support. We do offer companion care to give loved ones a much-needed break or to just keep care receivers company when family and friends live far away or are unavailable to assist. In addition, our companion drivers can complete various errands for care receivers when they are unable to leave their home whether temporarily or permanently.
Our companion drivers are also available to perform light housekeeping and other small chores around the home. However, they cannot provide maid service. We’ll leave that to the housekeeping professionals.
Please Note: We do not provide personal care services such bathing, toileting, dressing, grooming etc.
