Mobility Couldn't be Easier

   
 As we age getting around and doing the things we want and need to do can be tiresome and difficult.  Today mobility couldn't be easier.  With all of the options and prices of mobility products almost everyone can afford one of the products to make their life easier.  Don't get me wrong, the first choice is exercise as a lifestyle choice.  This is the cheapest and best option for an independent life.  Some people have medical conditions that are unavoidable which have prevented them from maintaining strength and endurance.  Others have the ability and strength to get around but may lack the endurance.  I took my mother shopping the other day at her request, however, I noticed not long after arriving at the store she looked tired.  With no where to sit and rest I call it an early day and we went home.  I could tell she was relieved, but she never complained.  Here are some options that are affordable and I will tell you what they are capable of performing.  
     Powered wheelchairs are usually covered by Medicare.  These usually can be operated electrically or manually if the power is running out.  They can come in different models and sizes to fit your physique.  Here are just a few.  For more information just click on the picture to learn more about these products.






     A step up can be the mobility of a scooter.  Three wheeled scooters perform better inside the home, whereas those with four wheels can handle the sometime difficult terrain of the outdoors.  Both models come in folding versions making them easy to transport.  Others require lifts to get them in and out of the car.  Either way you can find a fit for your situation.  Here are some of the scooter versions and some can be purchased for less than a thousand dollars.




     In the last picture the scooter is only $649 making this very affordable for many people.  I don't know why the link came out so small but it is an attractive scooter that is very affordable.  I hope you find one you like that helps you get back out and start enjoying the great outdoors.  One of these is in my mothers future too.  When I decide on the model, I will update post and let you know her experience with her scooter.

I have not successfully found a specific statute or law reguarding senior citizens recieving tuition waivers or discounts.  Many colleges offer discounted tuition, tuition waivers for auditing courses, and various educational opportunities for senior citizens.  Check the list below and click on links that have additional information regarding educational opportunities.
