Mobility Problems: Got a Scooter?
(Harpers Ferry, West Virginia )
I worked until I was 81 and have now retired to live with my daughter. My surroundings are comfortable and I could do not ask for a better setting for my later years. My daughter works so I have the house to myself during the week. I still have my own car, so am able to get out of the house as needed.
My problem that continues to grow is mobility, I have walked with a cane for several years, but find walking and standing are becoming increasingly difficult. Have been considering purchasing a scooter for outings.
Have done a lot of research on line and have spoken with some dealers about their scooters plus a lift to put the scooter into my SUV. I do understand that Medicare may help with the expense of the scooter, but not the lift for the vehicle.
So, my question is, have any of you purchased a scooter and are they more trouble than Help?
Access to many places is limited by stairs or narrow doorways.
Would appreciate any advice or past experiences you maybe able to share. I need contact with real people and that means getting out of the house, so I am hoping the scooter will solve my proplem?
