Video Blog Episode 03: Directing Your Own Care

Directing your own care.

Life in a wheelchair isn’t as bad as it’s made out to be. We are a few decades into the American with Disability Act (ADA) and society has adapted to the wheelchair world. This wasn’t possible without people speaking their minds and we shouldn’t stop advocating for ourselves. Directing your own care is the most important thing a wheelchair user can do to make life easier and safer.

People don’t know your personal ability level so if you need help over a curb, upstairs or transferring use your voice. This is something I learned during my rehabilitation and took it home with me. We aren’t super heroes so reading your mind isn’t going to happen. Direct your own care.
