VIAtrans is a transportation service option for customers who cannot utilize regular bus service because of a disability. It is a shared-ride, curb-to-curb service that offers independence through mobility and expands access to opportunity via transit.

Individuals living with physical disabilities or special needs have unique care requirements, and in many cases, mobility is limited and some level of home care is required. At BrightStar Care of Metro San Antonio, we provide a personalized approach to care, case management, and disability assistance for our clients.

Quality Home Care:

BrightStar Care care professionals are trained to help those with disabilities and special needs such as Spina Bifida, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Cerebral Palsy and spinal cord injuries, giving them the support they need to live as independently as possible. From disability aids and accessible transportation to personal care, our advanced and specialized expertise in this area ensures our clients’ safety, and empowers you and your family to get the most out of life.

Our disability care services include:

  • Pressure Relief: Mobility issues can lead to pressure sores, debecutis ulcers and, in severe cases, the need for wound care. BrightStar Care caregivers are trained to provide pressure relief every 15 minutes for wheelchair-bound patients, and to turn bed-bound patients every two hours to prevent complications caused by prolonged immobility. Our CNAs are also trained in the transfer of patients using Hoyer lifts and slide boards, and use the proper techniques to help patients avoid injuries and falls during transport.
  • Care for Special Needs Children: Babies, infants and children living with disabilities or special needs have unique care requirements. BrightStar Care trained professionals specialize in administering in-home pediatric care and can provide comprehensive case management and support for children with special needs.
  • Special Event and Respite Care: Whether you need assistance caring for your loved one during a wedding or holiday celebration, BrightStar Care care professionals can provide help on a short-term basis so you and your family can make time for a vacation or receive additional support during a special event.
  • Travel Companionship: Travel and transportation can be challenging for individuals with disabilities and special needs. BrightStar Care provides travel companion care to help make travel accessible for people with special needs, enabling them to experience more in life.
  • Medical Procedure Transportation: BrightStar Care care professionals are available to help those who need assistance with a scheduled medical procedure or doctor’s appointment. Your compassionate care professional will:
  • Pick you up at home and taking you to the hospital or doctor’s office.
  • Wait until the procedure is completed and signing you out.
  • Safely transport you home.
  • If needed, stop at a pharmacy, grocery store, or restaurant if you need prescription, medical supplies, groceries, or food.
  • Make sure you are safely settled in your home after your procedure.

Additional options:

  • We can stay with you in your home after the procedure and assist with meal preparation, bathing, toileting, laundry, light cleaning, and medication reminders.
  • A Registered Nurse (RN) can visit after you are home and change your dressings, perform wound care or infection monitoring.
  • An RN patient advocate can help coordinate care, treatment, and communicate between you, your family and healthcare providers. We can attend appointments with you and help you understand options and make the best possible health care decision.

BrightStar Care is ready to help.

Our Care Model The MAC’s innovative approach provides comprehensive and coordinated medical and non-medical services under one roof. The MAC seeks to help individuals with disabilities and special needs of all ages find the assistance they need to improve their health and well-being.

MAC Navigation: The MAC’s services use a family-centered approach with full collaboration from the family, MAC Member, and community partners known as MACers (pronounced “MACK-ers”). Click here to learn more.

Ultra-Accessible™ means that everyone has the same opportunity to be included and participate intentionally in their community. An Ultra-Accessible™ community should provide environments for people of all abilities where they are set up for mobility, access, and success.

The MAC Navigators The MAC Care Model™ is centered around addressing Non-Medical Drivers of Health (NMDOH) through team members known as MAC Navigators that serve as single points of contact for the individuals with disabilities and special needs that The MAC serves. Click here for the Navigation Road Map.

Pre-screening on The MAC website or in person determines eligibility to become a MAC member.

(For purposes of The MAC at Morgan’s Wonderland™, people with a “special need” are defined as individuals of all ages with long-term impairment of cognitive, sensory, motor and/or communication functions, either congenital or acquired, that are not readily rehabilitated. Furthermore, a special need substantially limits an individual’s ability to perform activities in the range of what is considered typical for a person of the same age and cultural context. A special need may result in associated social, behavioral, or mental health complexities, requiring specialized intervention by a professional. Populations served by the MAC are the range of conditions that are classified as intellectual and developmental disabilities as well as acquired or congenital physical disabilities.)

The MAC serves individuals of all ages.

ADA Adult & Babies Changing Tables available.

There are no income requirements to receive Navigation services.

Our MAC Members are members as long as they continue receiving services at The MAC.

Each of our MACers (community partners) accepts specific forms of insurance. MAC Navigators are able to connect MAC Members with the correct partner.
