In the vibrant expanse of Arizona, the heartbeat of the community thrives in its diversity. Yet, within this tapestry of cultures and landscapes, a crucial aspect often overlooked is the need for disability transportation services.
Our goal at HealthLift is to provide these individuals with a reliable means for daily transportation needs for education, opportunities to work, connecting with others, and going to their medical appointments.
If you or a family member have specific accessibility needs, it can get tricky just to get to and from major Arizona airports.
1 in 4 (or 26%) adults in the United States have some type of disability. For business owners and institution heads, this is a significant market or population to ignore.
A way to address this problem is to find safe, reliable, and equitable Non-Emergency Medical Transportation or NEMT. These rides cater to your specific medical transportation needs without having to get an ambulance.
Booking a Non-Emergency Medical Transportation or NEMT is always your best option. It makes getting around easier and safer for those who utilize a wheelchair, stretcher, or other mobility devices.
Unlike conventional medical transportation, you can use NEMT for various non-emergency situations such as doctor’s appointments, therapy sessions, treatments, and many other needs. You can even utilize it for a trip to the grocery store, leisure activities, and visiting family and friends!
According to The Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council (ADDPC), 11.2% of the population in Maricopa County and 15.3% of Pima County are living with a disability (2019). This community needs resources that help with daily life, like transportation services from HealthLift. HealthLift NEMT of Arizona is a wheelchair friendly ride service that allows people with disabilities to get where they need to go, when they need to be there.
