The Growing Need for Non-Emergency Medical Transport

As America continues to expand its aging population, it is no wonder that the demand for non-emergency medical transport continues to grow substantially. With chronic illnesses, disabilities, injuries, obesity, and old age becoming more common, there are many reasons why Americans continue to rely on these much-needed services to make their appointments or continue to live a normal life. To help accommodate this need, Deano’s Senior Transit strives to provide reliable and comfortable transportation services for the populations in Tulsa and the surrounding areas that rely on them most. 

Non-emergency medical transport should be readily available to everyone who needs it. And, with this mission in mind, Deano’s Senior Transit works to ensure it is. Without access to accommodating and reliable transportation, many people across Green Country are risking their life and overall health. Unfortunately, this leads to the risk of additional illness and death if certain conditions are left untreated. Although people require non-emergency medical transport for a variety of reasons, there is no denying the growing need that becomes more apparent each day to deal with chronic sickness or conditions that make it harder to drive like obesity or old-age. 

Transportation for Chronic Illness Patients

Chronic illness has steadily been growing across both children and adults in Tulsa and the United States as a whole. To put this problem into perspective, in 2004, 7% of the population had been diagnosed with a chronic illness. Finding transportation to the doctor or anywhere else should not be a hassle if you have underlying conditions. To help provide this necessary service, Deano’s Senior Transit is available for non-emergency medical transport for those suffering from cancer, kidney disease, heart disease, obesity, or diabetes to ensure they are making their scheduled appointments on time. 

Transportation for Seniors Patients

As the population of elderly Americans continues to grow, the need for reliable transportation services should also grow in lockstep. By 2020, nearly 8.5% of the world population consisted of people aged 65 or older; however, this same group is often unable to drive due to vision problems or other medical issues. And, although autonomous vehicles may be available in the distant future, the need for reliable senior transportation services is still a big concern to ensure our elderly population can not only make it to doctor’s appointments, but also social gatherings or funerals. 

Transportation for Bariatric Patients

More than 1 in 3 adults in the United States are considered obese by clinical standards. Unfortunately, this condition also leads to a loss in mobility and the ability to drive in compact cars that require limited space to operate successfully. Consequently, this condition may also lead to the need for advanced medical care due to a higher risk of developing chronic illnesses. In conjunction with the growing sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy diet many choose to pursue, the need for reliable transportation for obese individuals will also continue to grow.
