NMEDA - A Great Non-Profit

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

Being a caregiver can be very hard on a family. My family has had to go through that in the past. My grandmother had to have care when she got older. And my Dad suffered from ALS before he died and had to be in a wheelchair.

Now I'm getting worried about my Mother-in-law and my Mother. My MIL just had a stay at a nursing home and now that she is home needs a lot of care and has trouble getting in and out of the car. Last time I was visiting her we took her out, and she could barely get in and out of the car. And I recently learned my Mother has to have a hip operation next month, so it may prove difficult for her to get around too much for awhile also.

I found out about a great non-profit association that may be able to help though. It is called NMEDA. They do not sell anything, but instead educate consumers on buying products from a NMEDA qualified dealer. They are the only association that promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people.

NMEDA can help the elderly or disabled get back on the road to independence. They can give you a personalized "in person" evaluation and you can be sure you are getting the right driving solution. NMEDA dealers (members) are the ones who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people.

They also have a Quality Assurance Program, which 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.

To get started all you have to do is go to their website homepage and hit the dealers locator. Type in your zip code and see if there is a qualified dealer near you. There are many in my area! Let me know if there are in yours!
