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!
