Welcome to our first in a series on mobility. Here, we will explore the services and products available in the community that will make life easier as you struggle with the challenge of being mobile when you have been injured or ill. Whether it is a temporary situation or a permanent one, mobility is freedom, and I have learned that lesson personally this summer when I broke three bones and was not able to weight bear during my recovery. I went from being an active person to a shut-in over-night. Unable to drive, I became dependent on other people and saw firsthand the challenges of those with mobility issues.
