You know the convenience of using ride-sharing apps like Lyft and Uber. It’s so frustrating when your elderly parents need help with transportation and can’t access these great options. But, some seniors just don’t want to get a smartphone. Or, they struggle to navigate an app.
Requesting Lyft or Uber Using a Computer
Both Uber and Lyft have options for requesting rides via computer. For elderly relatives with a computer but no smartphone, this can be a good solution. You can show them how or type up some instructions to keep by their computer.

Convenience & Security with EasyLiving’s Lyft Concierge Assistance
You can request rides on someone else’s behalf if you need to set up transportation for your elderly parent. The service includes both on-demand and scheduled rides. The rider doesn’t need the Lyft app. Everything is tracked with real-time data and you know the prices up front. There’s no need for Mom and Dad to figure out how to call a taxi or have cash on hand, deal with tipping, etc.
EasyLiving offers an array of in-home and community-based services for elders throughout Pinellas and Pasco counties in Florida. By partnering with Lyft, we’ve expanded the ways we can help. We believe eldercare needs to evolve just as so many other industries are changing to meet the needs of today’s consumer. Our team is thrilled to bring the ease of ride apps to our local seniors in a way that works for them.
