Driving Miss Daisy
Helping the elderly, disabled or anyone who can’t drive continue to be mentally and physically active within their community. Services UK wide. DBS Checked & first-aid trained drivers.
We started DMD Stamford to help people maintain their independence and to support them when family are unable to. We are flexible and able to adapt our service to meet individual needs – we want to help people remain mobile, encourage social interaction and provide companionship to help them to live life to the full.
we are being very careful for our clients health and of course for ours too... Before and after each journey we wipe down the interior of our vehicles thoroughly using alcohol sprays, this includes the door handles, dashboards and seat-belts. Before the journey begins we will ask our client to sit in the back of the vehicle, wherever possible, and on the opposite side to the driver (rear passenger seat). If this is difficult our clients can sit in the front but we will both wear our masks whilst in the vehicle. We have free masks for clients that can be taken home after a trip and washed ready for your next outing. Our drivers will replace their masks throughout the day too and they will be washed on a hot wash nightly. We will still be our usual chatty selves and look forward to finding out all about you! We understand that life will have been strange for many of you and will be there to support you in readjusting to the ‘new normal’ . We have a visor that we can wear if you have difficulty hearing and need to read our lips. During the journey, where possible, we will keep the client’s window and that of the driver slightly open to allow fresh air to circulate. We will of course use the heater to keep an ambient temperature. Drivers will maintain excellent personal hygiene, using alcohol rubs before/ during and after each clients’ trip. We will wash our hands thoroughly at all opportunities. We will politely ask that our clients do the same. Social distancing will be exercised, whilst still maintaining our usual caring approach. We can still offer an arm or support your walker but will try to give you as much space as possible. We can take you to scenic places where we can keep our distance from others
