8 Useful Mobility Aids for Seniors with Disabilities
We think it’s really important for elderly households to maintain their freedom of mobility as much as possible and mobility scooters are excellent for this purpose. There is one downside of course and that’s the cost – typically mobility scooters are well into the thousands of dollars. While some funding may be available in parts of the world, typically a mobility scooter is considered a cost the individual or their family would incur.
Do your homework on mobility scooters and make sure you invest in a model that works for the needs of the user. Online reviews can be a really helpful tool to gauge the long term owner experience. As with anything, a lower cost scooter may not come with the comfort settings so often needed by the user, especially if negotiating local footpaths and car crossings!
