Not all individuals that utilize wheelchairs and other mobility aids have readily available access to reliable transportation. Either they are unable to to drive themselves, don’t have friends/family able to cater to all of their needs, or some other circumstance that prevents them from getting around.
When it comes to family, there’s no doubt you would go the extra mile to make sure they’re safe and comfortable. This rings particularly true for those in our family using wheelchairs. The fact is, however, that we’re not always able to be there for them whenever they may need help. Reliable transportation is a primary concern in such cases, especially if regular appointments need to be met.
Public transportation has evolved throughout the years to accommodate wheelchair patients who need to get to their destination. It’s not the most convenient option out there, though, and when there’s simply no one to drive wheelchair users around, there’s always the option to book non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT).
With how risky the world has become due to the pandemic, it’s important for the most vulnerable in society to stay safe and protected. Hospital visits often leave increased opportunities for exposure, so choosing reliable, fully sanitized transportation is important.
