Who can pick up my DAD from the Airport?
My dad is disabled and blind on one eye and uses a cane to get around.
With your Dad's situation, it would be best to have a Home Care Company that is located near the final destination. For example, if your dad is flying into LAX and then going to Pasadena to be with family... it would be best to hire a home care company in the Pasadena area. Have the company (or Caregiver) coordinate with the airline to assure a clean hand-off. The airline will let the company (caregiver) know exactly where and when to pick him up. The airline is responsible from the airplane/gate to somewhere in a non-secure area like baggage claim to transfer the responsibility of getting him to the final destination. You will be charged an hourly charge and possible mileage or both. Only go with an agency that provides THEIR employees with the correct insurance (liability, workers compensation, etc.) to cover them and your dad. Also make sure the company collects current MVR's on all their caregivers. Having a caregiver assist dad from the airport to the car and ultimately to the final destination should bring piece of mind knowing he will get there.
