Thirty years ago, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law, but the needs of people with mobility disabilities continue to be overlooked and unheard. According to a recent study by BraunAbility, nearly half of people with disabilities still feel excluded from community participation because of their mobility impairment.
Most people can agree, 2020 was a year like no other. After having experienced restricted mobility and isolation under shelter-in-place orders, the same study showed nearly 70 percent of the general population expressed having a greater willingness to understand and accommodate others who experience isolation or challenges because of a mobility impairment.
This is where R&J Mobility Service comes in. We are here to help you live your life with no limits! We have multiple products, from scooters to wheelchair accessible vans and even mobility aids to keep you living a great life.
Our customers come from many different backgrounds, including those who have served in the military. R&J Mobility Service honors American veterans for their service, courage, and sacrifice for our country. There are many resources to help veterans obtain mobility equipment and adapted vehicles. In fact, a disabled veteran may be eligible for as much as $49,000 towards the cost of a wheelchair accessible vehicle.
One such senior Veteran, David, suffered injuries during his Service that made it difficult, or even impossible, to get out and do the things he loved because walking caused so much pain. He wanted to find a scooter so he could regain some of his independence and have easier mobility.
“R&J Mobility helped me find the perfect scooter to get back out and experience life again,” said David. “I am so happy I can now easily go to stores, go camping, and take my wife out to dinner again. Working with the VA and R&J Mobility was easy and they both helped me along the way.”
