Journey To A New Home!

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!

92 Year Old Grandparents Attend Their Daughter’s Wedding!

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!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart

Thanks Mike! I worked in health care for 20 years and share your values.  Now as a patient I can see all the more, how incredible it is for a patient to be touched by the passion and warmth of someone like you.  Keep up the amazing work and thanks from the bottom of my heart.  Thanks also for those who forget or are too sick to say thank you.

This makes it all worth while

Dear Mike:
I just wanted to thank you for your service in November, 2015, for taking my mom to her grandson’s wedding. Unfortunately, my mom passed away, in January, so her dream to see my youngest son’s wedding this Fall is watching from heaven. At least we had your service to help us get her to the wedding and that made it a great day. Thanks for all you do, I tell people about your service all the time, if it wasn’t for the service my mom wouldn’t have had the opportunity as she did. Thanks again J.O. St. Louis
