Lifeguard Ambulance Service is offering its first annual
"Home for the Holidays"
assistance program for Thanksgiving.
This complimentary ambulance transportation is offered to local residents in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, who might otherwise be unable to be with their families for Thanksgiving due to limited access to specialized transportation.
"Thanksgiving is a special time for families to gather around, enjoy a big feast and share what they are most grateful for each year," said Gerald Ward, Operations Manager for Lifeguard. "However, the holidays can be a difficult time for families, especially if they are separated from their loved ones."
Ward continued, "We are honored to provide this service during the holiday season. Transporting someone home for the holidays is a small way that Lifeguard is able to give back to the community in which we serve.
Lifeguard Ambulance Service will pre-schedule trips for this Thanksgiving holiday. The "Home for the Holidays" program is offered on a space available basis between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Participants must be medically self-supporting while at the residence and will be left in the care of a responsible family member.
Lifeguard will be offering the program again during the Christmas holidays. For more information about Lifeguard, call 850.785.0911 or visit the website at www.lifeguardambulance.com.
