ELISABETH’S LIFE TURNED AROUND BY SCHEME
Elisabeth, aged 8, has spina bifida and hydrocephalus, conditions that affect her nervous system and mobility.
Without Motability, her life and that of her carers including mum Sam, would be much more difficult.
Thankfully, Motability came to the rescue with a range of choices that helped out.
Elisabeth’s mum Sam said: “As Elisabeth got older, we struggled to lift her into the car, and there wasn’t enough space for the wheelchair and the whole family to travel together.
“What we needed was a car with ramped access so that Elisabeth could travel in her wheelchair, but that was also big enough for the whole family.”
Sam approached Motability who gave them a grant towards a suitable wheelchair accessible vehicle.
“Thanks to the new car we are mobile,” said Sam. “After we got the car, we went on our first family camping trip.”
