Medical escort & transport
Medical Escort & Transport Service (MET)
We provide Medical Escort & Transport (MET) services for elderly persons who are unable to go for their medical appointments independently nor have any caregivers to accompany them. Our MET services cater to various different needs, such as transport, transport with basic escort and transport with accompanied escort.
Members of our Afterlife Memorial Service (AMS) are eligible for this service at no costs and a small fee applies for non-members.
In 2021, our MET made a total of 244 trips, bringing much convenience and comfort to our beneficiaries.
Types of mET services
There are three types of services in our MET Services.
Transport Only - The elderly requires transport to and from their home and the medical institution only.
Transport and Basic Escort - The elderly requires transport to and from their home and the medical institution with an escort for the journey.
Transport and Accompanied Escort - The elderly requires transport, and an escort to accompany them throughout the medical appointment. This includes collection of medicine and reasonable requests.
