Non medical escorts for hospital visits

catwoman5757 Member Posts: 6 Listener

I am a new member and what directed me to Scope was  to see if anyone can advise how to find someone to come with me on hospital visits.

I have hospital transport but due to the risk of fainting etc require an escort with me since distraction to driver caused by the event, and possible panic of other passengers, could cause an accident.

I am not too badly disabled.  Not blind enough, deaf enough or fall prone enough to come under the umbrella of any of the charities I have contacted, and to which I am being ping ponged by social services.

I am happy to pay something for the help

How do other Members find people to help them in this way please?

Thank you for any suggestions, as I have already had to cancel 0ne appointment due to being unable to find an escort.
