Wheelchair Accessible Transport
Liberty Private Care have their own wheelchair accessible transport available to take clients out and about. It is available for bookings of a minimum of two hours with a qualified carer driving the car and providing care and support for the whole duration.
Of course, you don’t have to be in a wheelchair to use this service and we can also take another passenger if required, so ideal for a couple.
Our car can be booked for such things as taking you for medical appointments, shopping trips, theatre visits, visiting family, days out, attending a wedding or other family event.
The driver will be one of our qualified carers. They will also have undertaken professional driver training so that they have more awareness of what to think about and do when driving a client.
They will not only drive you, but will stay with you at your destination to provide care and support as required.
The driver/carer is insured to drive the car on Liberty Private Care’s insurance policy.
Our car is insured and maintained and owned by Liberty Private Care
We have a Blue Badge for when parking to make your destination more accessible.

On the day, the carer will collect you from the prearranged address and take you to your destination. Once there, they will accompany you to provide care and support as required.
If there is a part of the trip when you do not want the carer to be present, they will wait for you at a nearby location until you are ready for them to accompany you again.
