My great-Aunt is currently in a nursing home. She has been sick for years, has had to use a walker and wheel chair and has had very limited mobility. She is in her 80s now but still would appreciate some independence. Once her house gets a ramp she will be discharged into the care of her children. I have another Aunt, who is much younger, in my parents age group, who had an unexpected stroke which left her unable to use one side of her body. She has had to endure intense physical therapy and now relies on a mobility scooter to get around. She is so young, she definitely wants to retain her independence.
Independence and mobility are both things we take for granted, aren’t they? But if like me, you have someone close to you that suffers from a physical disability, you know they struggle. Wheelchair accessible vehicles and mobility equipment allow those with disabilities to take back their independence.
