Bradley contacted Mobility Unlimited in late August, 2005. His physical therapist at Good Sam Hospital in Portland had heard about Mobility Unlimited and how they help physically disabled working adults with durable medical equipment. So, he placed a call and connected immediately with Susie Merrill, client services director for Mobility Unlimited.
Bradley was working at Garten Services, Inc, in Salem as a paper sorter and shredder, so he totally qualified for the services of Mobility Unlimited. He has a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsey and was using a quad (four- pronged) cane. His doctor told Bradley he needed a power wheelchair. Luckily, Mobility Unlimited could help him achieve mobility independence by assisting him with the power chair. Even though Bradley works, he has no private health insurance. Like many clients of Mobility Unlimited, his Medicaid policy does not cover the cost of power wheelchairs.
Working with vendor Care Medical in Salem, Bradley received his new Jet 3 Ultra on October 21, 2005- only two months after applying with Mobility Unlimited. Now that’s a solution for today! Good luck, Bradley!
