I visited our neighbor yesterday which had an accident last week. She just came from the hospital a couple of days ago. She broke her hip and had her implant right after that mishap. Right now her mobility is either on the wheelchair or on the walker. She used to be so independent that she lived all by herself all these years, but have to have someone doing things for her lately. She told us that it is one of the hard things that she has to accept, losing her independency. I understand that it is very common here among the seniors. Nobody don’t want to be in a state of dependency. I believe that in no time at all, she will be back to herself again.
Talking about disability, NMEDA (National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association) is a non-profit trade association. They promote safe driving and equipment for disabled people. They required adhering to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. They educate consumers on buying products from a NMEDA qualified dealer, the ones who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people. It is often quoted that every human is a unique creation... and so is the disability of the individual person. No two people with disability are exactly the same. That’s just so amazing. That is why, the needs for wheelchair or any mobility equipment should be customized according to the needs of the patient. That is why, sometimes, it is not ideal to buy stuff like those online or through catalogs because these kind of stuff needs evaluation that needs personal assistant to be sure that you are getting the right driving solution customized to your specific lifestyle and needs. NMEDA is providing additional training or product refinements for their customers convenient.
For more information, NMEDA has two individual services: (1) Dealers and (2)Quality Assurance Programs (QAP). QAP is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. It is based on the principle that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality.
Personally, I have a passion to take care of the seniors. Although some of them are mean, that being a caregiver is known to be a very tough job, but generally they need understanding and love that a caregiver should give. The good news is, NMEDA qualified dealer could assist to make the job of the caregiver a lot easier. They brought great help to the elderly and disabled get back onto the road of independence that they really wanted.
Therefore, I suggest that if you or someone that you love needs this assistance, be sure to go to NMEDA.org and on the homepage, hit the dealers locator and type in your ZIP code and see if there is a qualified dealer near you. I tried it, too, for my mama. I needed to see what they can do for my mama. It is worth the time visiting their website and if you can, please leave me a comment letting me know your closest qualified dealer. Thank you very much.
