Lifeguard Ambulance Offers Complimentary "Home For The Holidays" Service Over Christmas

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Lifeguard Ambulance Service is offering its annual “Home for the Holidays” service on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. 

This complimentary ambulance transportation service provides local residents living in skilled nursing facilities with an opportunity to spend the holidays with their families. Often times, these residents are unable to sit in a personal vehicle; therefore, a lack of specialized transportation separates them from their families on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

“When living in these facilities, the residents may get a visit from family members one or two at a time,” said Jim Webber, operations manager. “However through this effort, they can enjoy the day with everyone at the same time. The holiday season is always a special time for families, and this program allows Lifeguard to give a gift to the community. We hope this program makes a big difference in the lives of those in which we are fortunate to be serving in the Chattanooga area.”

“Home for the Holidays” 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.
