This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.We have a sister in our congregation who has been paralyzed ever since I met her 6 years ago. I guess she had a stroke a long time ago and she is bound to a wheel chair for the rest of her life. I feel sad for her because whenever we see her coming to our congregation it's always a big ordeal to get her in and out of the car and onto her wheel chair. I never knew about NMEDA until recently when I wanted to see if I could help her out with transportation. That stands for quality equipment as far as I'm concerned but they are a non-profit trade group educating consumers about buying equipment from NMEDA qualified dealers. How can this help our sister in our congregation? Well, they can do an on-site evaluation of her mini-van so that it can be customized and built to accommodate her. I am considering talking to her about how she can afford purchasing an adapted wheel chair vehicle that would be built to her specific needs so that she could easily make it to our congregation without any help from us. When considering purchasing an adapted wheel chair vehicle you need to make sure it's from a Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealer, otherwise you may not be getting your money's worth. NMEDA qualified dealers are professionals in the business of advocating safe reliable vehicles to enhance accessibility for all people. I will recommend an appointment so that our sister can talk to a NMEDA qualified dealer so that she can get back on the road to freedom. If you have a loved one who has limited mobility, why not talk to a NMEDA dealer to see how they can help your loved one too. Want to know if there's a NMEDA dealer near you?
