That’s right! Just Like Family is not only about home care. We’re about providing a suite of complementary services to help you or your loved ones when they need it.

Just Like Family Home Care

If you’ve read our blog before, you’re probably familiar with our Home Care service. We focus on providing the best care to you and your loved ones whether it’s to help run errands, cook, and clean or to perform medical assistance or help with plastic surgery after care. You can choose from companions to those with specialized degrees like RN or LPN.

Concierge Transport Services

Our next service is Concierge Transport Services. This is a customized transportation option servicing Southwest Florida with the ability to travel anywhere from Miami to Tampa. For those in need of local transport, we provide one-ways and round-trips all at a fair price. There’s also no worrying about how much to tip, it’s included in our price so you won’t have to even think about it.

Our lineup of vehicles include everything from a non-emergency vehicle suited for stretchers, wheelchairs, and scooters to our luxury Mercedes sedan ready to take you to the airport for a business trip or to make your next date night extra special. Our drivers are well-known for their care and assistance and are always willing to go the extra mile for those they are transporting.

Concierge Medical Transport

Concierge Medical Transport started after Concierge Transport. We noticed a need in the Southwest Florida area for more medical-related transportation. This includes hospital discharges, skilled nursing facility appointments, and inter-facility transfers. On October 28, 2015, a unanimous vote by the Board of Collier County Commissioners awarded Just Like Family Concierge Medical Transport a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity for Class 2 Advanced Life Support.

Call & Care

Our Call & Care service developed out of our desire to give you peace of mind when you’re away from your older loved ones. Our service provides and engaging, reliable calling service to help reduce social isolation and loneliness. Call & Care is a consistent connection for your loved one if you plan to be away or just want to provide them with more socialization.

Convenient Custom Transportation

4 cars

Living in southwest Florida without a car can sometimes be a hassle. We have the Collier Area Transit bus system, but it’s not always reliable, and it may not go to the areas you need. You can use a taxi service, but that can get expensive and you may have to wait a while for one to show up. You can also ask a friend or family member to drive you, but sometimes we don’t want to bother others with small trips to the store, doctors office, or airport. What other solution is there for this transportation challenge?

Just Like Family Concierge Transport Services!

At Just Like Family Home Care, we realized a need for not only seniors, but others throughout southwest Florida. The need? Convenient, affordable, reliable transportation. Transportation you can trust to take you to the airport, bring you on your errands, or pick you up from a hospital discharge. Taxi services and other transportation groups lack the necessary vehicles you may need. Those requiring wheelchairs, walkers, large scooters, and even stretchers don’t have many transportation options. Just Like Family Concierge Transport Services has a non-emergency medical vehicle just for these clients! No more contacting a third-party ambulance service which ends up charging by the mile!

Another vehicle we offer is our luxury Mercedes sedan. This car is for those looking to impress. No matter if you are going to the airport, or heading out on the town for a date, this vehicle will let you keep up appearances and feel confident. A lack of a car doesn’t mean you should have to rely on budget rental cars.

We also provide round trip airport service! In airport from Miami to Tampa is fair game for us. We will drive you up for a red eye to Orlando International Airport, and pick you up from a late night flight landing in Miami. We also head to cruise ship ports, so you won’t need to drive and leave your car at the port for a week.

The service is great for seniors and their families. We are always on time, will wait for you, and can even assist with errands. You’ll feel confident calling us to bring your grandmother to the store to get groceries or help your dad get to his dentist appointment. We provide peace of mind for families that don’t live near older relatives.

Trips short and far, we do it all! Trust Concierge Transport Services for your next transportation related need.

Did you know Just Like Family Home Care, a private duty nursing company in Naples, also caters to clients recovering from plastic surgery? 

We work directly with Plastic Surgeons in the Naples area and have been providing superior care 24/7 for eight years.

Our Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses and Home Health Aides come directly to your home or temporary accommodation setting. We provide daily drop-in care, day or night care, extended hourly and after hours house-calls.

We offer our clients flexible scheduling because we understand that it may be difficult to gauge how much care you will need following surgery.

Our compassionate staff is sensitive to your complete privacy and you will rest peacefully knowing that we will have all your needs attended to—just like your own family would. This is what we mean by “where your family is our family, too”.

Our Nurses

Our nurses are carefully screened, licensed and go through a rigorous selection process. We only seek individuals that are experienced, possess high customer service standards and a warm bedside manner. Many of our nurses have even been referred to us from leading plastic surgeons in our area.

We understand that the decision to undergo surgery requires a lot of research and planning. It is just as important to consider your options for post-operative care. Just Like Family caters to those individuals who seek the best in nursing care and know the peace of mind of having assistance after surgery.

Physical exertion or stress could lead to serious complications. Allow us to pamper you throughout your experience and provide you with a smooth and successful recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will my Nurse assist me with after surgery?

Depending on your surgery and medical history, your surgeon may require you to have a Nurse to care for you in the beginning hours following your surgery. A Nurse can actually administer your medications and assist you with wound care, drain tubes, etc. They can also provide assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, getting dressed, preparing meals, light housekeeping, laundry and general household management. Because of different circumstances, including some people having family and/or friends to assist with the recovery, we will work closely with your surgeon and his office staff to customize a plan of care that promotes your safety and best outcome for recovery.

Will my Nurse be able to transport me to and from surgery and to my follow-up appointment?D80_2227

If your follow-up visit is scheduled during the course of your services, your Nurse can transport you to your appointment. You can also hire our company for transportation, Concierge Transport Services, to drive you to or from your surgery and/or post operative appointments.

In the event of an emergency, what will my Nurse do?

You can rest assured that all Just Like Family Nurses are experienced with post-op care and are CPR certified. Thus, in the event of an emergency, a standard protocol will be followed and they will contact your surgeon’s office immediately.

We’ll Take You There

JLF_ConciergeTransportServices_logoJust Like Family Home Care just recently launched a new company called Just Like Family Concierge Transport Services. We now have three vehicles services clients throughout Southwest Florida (and even the East Coast!) – The response has been incredible and Jacob and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

We’re finding in just a few short months, that this MUCH NEEDED service, originally designed for our senior clients, is really for ANYONE. We’re offering one-way or round-trip rides for:

  • Airport Service
  • Errands/Grocery Shopping
  • Hospital Discharge
  • Doctor & Medical Appointments
  • Hair & Day Spa Appointments
  • Weddings/Receptions
  • Prom & Graduation
  • Special Events
  • Corporate Service
  • Night Out
  • Group Transportation

Concierge Transport Services provide transportation to and from all commercial and private airports with a 200 mile radius:

  • Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW)
  • Naples Municipal Airport

  • Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL)
  • Palm Beach International Airport (PBI)
  • Tampa International Airport (TPA)
  • Port of Miami
  • Port of Tampa
  • Port of Everglades

We recently drove a nice couple from Minnesota to the airport on a rainy Tuesday morning and they just gave us this great review:

“We had an extra early flight and had to be picked up at 4:30 am.  It was rainy that morning so our driver arrived a few minutes early to ensure that we had plenty of time to make our flight.

The vehicle was very neat and clean and even had a bottle of water for each of us.  Extra early morning conversation is always a hard one to gauge, but our driver handled it perfectly.

The flat rate of $53.00 to RSW is a great price.  We didn’t have to worry about how much to tip, etc.  We were over the top happy with the service we received and will definitely use it again when we return to Naples.”

Whether you want to go out to dinner or to the other coast, Concierge Transport Service Will Take You There.
