NMEDA can help you regain independence

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Losing your independence can be a catastrophic blow and watching someone you know lose their independence is heartbreaking.  My mother's husband suffers from a disease that is slowly taking all of his muscles. When I saw him last, I was taken aback at just how much of his body weight and muscle mass had seemingly fallen away.  He needs constant care, provided exclusively by my mom.  Living in the snowbelt, getting around for him is even more difficult. How do you regain independence and get a vehicle that is suited to your personal needs?  How will my Mom be able to get him to and from doctor's appointments? This is where NMEDA might enter the picture.

Who is NMEDA?  NMEDA is a non-profit trade association.  They educate customers on what products can meet their very personal and individualized needs.  NMEDA doesn't sell anything. Their member dealers sell handicap vehicles and arrange for vehicle modifications to help those who have disabilities regain some sense of independence.

NMEDA has dealers and Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers.  The QAP is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry.  You know that what you are getting meets guidelines.

Being a caregiver hard work, both physically and emotionally. Your energy is spent taking care of your loved ones.  Let NMEDA find a way to take some of the burden off from you by helping you find the right van or vehicle modifications for your disabled family member to make traveling easier for both of you.

Find an NMEDA dealer near you.  The nearest one to me is in Forrestville, MD.  Please leave a comment letting me know where the nearest NMEDA dealer is for you.
