“Everything went great. We had a beautiful day. Jerry said he enjoyed being outside of the four walls of his home, so very much. Your tips were so helpful, in avoiding any problems. We picked up box lunches and had a picnic in the park. Hazel and her Grandpa had a wonderful time. All the simple things we take for granted are so difficult for someone who is disabled. Thank you so much for bringing such joy to our family. We will do this again.”
Hi, Mike, yesterday went great, as always with Laverne. She’s a treasure! I’m glad you sent the new form to me. It’s a great idea.
“The chair worked out great and we had a wonderful time in St Louis. I greatly appreciate the good service and will look forward to reaching out to you the next time I bring my dad in town.”
Last summer, a St. Louis family wanted to transport their 82-year-old, wheelchair bound grandmother from her Minneapolis home to a new permanent residence in St. Louis. Grandmother couldn’t fly because she had to position her legs out straight in front of her. The family initially contacted an air ambulance service and Mobility for U® provided the family with complete transportation service for 30% of the cost of hiring an air ambulance! They called Mobility for U® and we were up to the challenge. We sent two caregivers and one of our vans to Minneapolis and safely brought grandmother to St. Louis for thousands of dollars less than using an ambulance service and this included the hotel for the caregivers in Minneapolis, meals, gas—everything. The family was ecstatic!
One of my favorite stories—a family, who is now a member of our family of customers, really wanted their 92-year-old grandmother and grandfather to attend their daughter’s wedding and could not figure out how to transport them to the celebration. Both granddad and grandma were in electric wheelchairs and would not only needed transportation, but also assistance with personal hygiene and feeding. Our solution—we provided a male caregiver for grandfather, a female caregiver for grandmother and one of our Mobility for U® accessible vans. We picked up our passengers at their assisted living center on Saturday afternoon at 3PM, transported them to the downtown wedding and then to the reception. This allowed the grandparents to attend the entire wedding day and it was easy on the bridal party, too!
The irony of the event was that we originally were scheduled to take grandfather and grandmother back to their assisted living center at 7:30 PM, but they were having so much fun that they closed the reception at 10:00 PM! A great time had by all!
The other night, I received a panic call from one of our family of customers who had to transport his 88-year-old mother to the hospital. He discovered that a local ambulance service would cost $495.00 for the service. So, our client called Mobility for U®, picked up one of our vans at 11:00 PM, drove his mom to the hospital and was only charged $135.00 and he had the van for 24-hour!
