This community needs resources that help with daily life, like transportation services from HealthLift.

Non Emergency Medical Transportation for Wheelchair Users
People with disabilities are more likely to have regularly scheduled medical appointments for recovery, treatment, or health maintenance, which consequently requires recurring transportation. Although family and friends try to accommodate their ride needs, there are many instances when it’s just not possible for them to be available.
HealthLift provides a resource to these individuals and their families, allowing them the convenience of booking multiple accessible rides ahead of time online with a free HealthLift Account. HealthLift Accounts are able to book, edit, track rides online, and more! Top medical establishments in Arizona recommend and use HealthLift for all of their patients’ accessible ride needs.
