Name of service

I hurt my both of my knees yesterday and now I can not hardly get up to walk or walk. What is the service called that will come and pick you up to take to the doctors or other places.

It's called paratransit. Contact the agency that operates the bus and rail service in your community for more information.

It appears you live in Tacoma. See here: »www.piercetransit.org/shuttle.htm

But with paratransit, the taxpayer pays!

The problem with spending other people's money is that eventually, it runs out.

Re: Name of service

I used a service here called Visiting Nurse Association back in February. Had to get a colonoscopy. When you call them they will come to the house to do the initial paperwork. Set the date/time and the RN picked me up from home,waited,assist,and drove me back. She helped me get into the house(I was still pretty out of it....the whole thing was like a dream ) and fixed me something to eat. She also helped calm me down on the way to the hospital.
Cost around $48 for four hours I think.
She also could have done light housekeeping for the price as well.

Was too embarrassed to ask friends and neighbors for help. Girlfriend was in Italy. Also needed someone I can depend on. All of my sisters are in the nursing field but it wasn't that much of an emergency for them to fly here from Virginia.
And once I set the date for the procedure I had to be there. Really wanted to get this over with and not reschedule.

That being said....If it's a medical emergency you should call your physician or 911 for an ambulance.
In your situation I would have driven myself to the emergency room immediately after the accident or called my doctor.
