My husband and I have been considering purchasing a modified vehicle so that I can start driving again. The physical therapists at Spaulding Rehabilitation work with a company called Ride Away:
In particular, I have been working with:
I like this organization because they are a very low pressure sales team that have access to many used modified vehicles. If you buy a new vehicle, they will adapt it to your specific needs no matter what your disability. If you use the modified vehicle to get to work and live in Massachusetts, the Massachusetts rehabilitation commission may have a grant to help you pay for it.
While I have grown used to being a 'backseat driver,' I love the idea of being independent again. It is nice to get a ride but nothing beats having the wind in your hair on the open road!
Has anyone from other parts of the country had good experiences with organizations that can help modify vehicles? Let us know!
