Discover How You Can Earn $35 – $60 an Hour Driving Seniors To Medical Appointments …
(This fast-growing senior service business is needed every day in every town, and pays up to $60 an hour)
The senior population is growing fast – every day another ten thousand baby boomers turn 65. Today, one out of six Americans is over 65 – that’s 48 million seniors!
One in five seniors does not drive, and many of those are forced to stay home on any given day because of lack of transportation. This means they may miss a medical appointment, be unable to shop at the grocery store, or miss out on social events. In fact, an AAA survey said “Next to health, transportation is the most important issue for seniors.
One solution for non-driving seniors is a paid transportation service that helps them go where they want, stay as long as they want, and still get home. A private senior transportation business offers a safe way for non-driving seniors to easily get around and maintain an active and independent life.
The demand for private senior transportation services has been growing fast, fueled by all those folks turning 65 without transportation, who also need regular medical attention for a variety of conditions.
In addition, the federal government now requires that state medicaid programs cover the cost of transportation to medical appointments. This has created even more opportunities for local senior transportation businesses.
Easy To Start
A senior transportation business can be started with very little money – if you have a car and a cell phone, you’re almost there. The rewards are great – not just in dollars and cents – but in helping seniors live better lives by helping them enjoy their independence as long as possible. That’s priceless.
How much can I make with a senior transportation business?
Rates for private senior transportation services range from $35 to $60 per hour nationally. Rates are higher in large cities and lower in smaller towns and rural areas where the cost of living is lower. With rates like this, it’s possible to earn a solid income of $60,000 to $120,000 per year, depending on the rates where you live, and how many hours you work.
Another reward is that you’ll have a flexible schedule to allow you to balance your everyday family life with your client’s needs. Best of all, a senior transportation service is a recession-proof business. People grow old and require your help and services regardless of what the national economy is doing. In addition, there is no expensive training or college classes required, as you can earn while you learn.
What Is an N.E.M.T. Vehicle?
Unlike some medical transportation services, such as ambulances, a basic senior ride service does not require a special vehicle to transport seniors. There are far more seniors who are able to walk and just need a ride on a regular basis.
A senior transportation business is often called an NEMT business – short for non-emergency medical transport. The name means exactly that – unlike an ambulance or other emergency vehicle, your vehicle, whether a car, SUV or minivan, is an NEMT vehicle if you are taking passengers to and from medical appointments.
In addition to driving seniors to and from medical appointments, other popular trips you can get paid for are shopping, errands, airport drop off and pickup, church services and social events.
You can be a big help to seniors who are unable to drive to regular medical appointments and anywhere else they need to go by providing a senior ride service. The rewards go far beyond money, as your senior customers are grateful for your service that allows them to stay independent as long as possible.
“Your guide has everything I needed to get started, and the price is a bargain compared to the other N.E.M.T. books on the web. It’s full of practical, common-sense information, especially the list of medicaid brokers who hire local senior transportation services. That alone was worth 10X the price of your book. Thanks for all your help!” Melanie Varner – Wisconsin
This booming demand for senior transportation services has created an exceptional opportunity for those who are willing to provide rides for seniors. A senior transportation business can keep you as busy as you want to be, part-time or full-time, whether you live in a smaller community or a larger city.
You won’t need to buy an expensive new van or specialized equipment, because you can focus where there is a steady demand – transporting seniors who are able to walk. (The medical term is “ambulatory.”)
“I was laid off at 58 and needed income right away. Thanks for helping me get a fresh start helping local seniors get around. You were right – there’s plenty of work thanks to all those seniors who can’t drive to their medical appointments. BTW-your guide was easy to understand and had all I need to start up.” Marcus Dahlberg – Arizona
The opportunities are wide open in this fast-growing field, and so is the potential for an above-average income that’s recession proof. You’ll be providing a vital senior service, as well as earning the gratitude and respect of those in your community. We call it “Doing Well By Doing Good.”
