NMEDA - Find A Qualified Dealer Near You

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

There is some concerns in my family over my Mother-in-law. She is actually in the hospital right now. And has been since Saturday. She is getting older in age, and there is some concerns due to her heart. She has been having all kinds of tests done.

Even before this she has some mobility problems and sometimes has to rely on a wheelchair. She lives with her daughter, and if they have to go somewhere where there is a lot of walking involved she has to bring her wheelchair. Now with this new medical problem she may have when she gets out of the hospital I don't know what she will need.

My sister-in-law may need some modifications. Such as to her car to equip a new wheelchair. I found out some information I want to give her. It is about NMEDA. NMEDA is a non-profit trade association. 

NMEDA educates people on buying products from an NMEDA qualified dealer.  They do not sell anything. NMEDA is the only association that promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people. They are non-profit and their members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. NMEDA dealers (members) are the ones who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people.

NMEDA has has Dealers AND Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers. The Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. It is based on the principle that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality.

Being a caregiver is hard. But with an NMEDA qualified dealer there to assist you it can get the elderly and disabled back on the road to independence. Go to their website and plug in your zip code into the locator, to find a qualified dealer near you!

  1. Great artical! My mom is very old too and she's living with my sister in Turkey.
    It's not easy to take care of elderly or disabled.
    But NMEDA's website is very helpful for caregivers.
    I tweeted about their site last week.

  2. Great post.

    My parents are not that old yet, but I will check out their site for my FIL.
