There comes a point when you realize that the same relatives that raised, fed, and took care of you through your life now need your help in return. You want to help them, but at the same time you also want them to retain their own independence. Often times, one of the biggest issues with an aging relative is their ability to take care of themselves because they are losing or have lost their mobility. When walking to the bathroom, shower, or kitchen becomes a burden, it can be discouraging for someone to do the things that are necessary for a healthier life. It isn’t that they are mentally incapable of doing these things, but that their physical bodies won’t allow them to in a timely and safe manner. In these instances, a power mobility device may be the best bet for your relative. Let’s discuss helping a relative get a power wheelchair or scooter through insurance.
Should your relative qualify for a power mobility device through insurance they will be met with increased mobility allowing them to take care of household chores with less stress and time commitment than before. This in effect will give them the freedom to feel empowered and take many tasks into their hands.
The question becomes how can they get a power mobility device? If they aren’t internet savvy, you can help them. For starters, you can fill out our “qualify through insurance form”, which is located here. If qualified, and approved by their physician, your relative could be in a power mobility device free of charge.
Of course, if they want any upgrades such as baskets those costs will likely be out of pocket, but if they qualify and they are approved by their doctor, they will be in a free power mobility device.
After the form has been filled out, an Aeroflow mobility specialist will follow up with you within three business days to discuss your options with you. Helping a relative get a power wheelchair or power scooter through insurance is the best thing you can do to help them regain their independence.
