I’ve already blogged somewhat about my most recent trip, but I just wanted to shed MORE light on it! Because 1) I wish I could go back and 2) I was a bit atypical.
I USUALLY am in my wheelchair 🦼 ALL the time, but I’ve been using my walker more. Here is where I differentiate between a walker and a rollator (at least in MY case).
Walker = What you think of 😂 Metal frame and 2 small tires. Commonly with 2 tennis balls.
Rollator = Bigger tires. Looks bulkier.
I use the rollator mostly outside, on my walks or in daily life. I reserve the walker for mostly indoor use. Or in this case, myy walker and my wheelchair 🦼 That way one device is outside and 1 device is inside 😉
I feel, especially, during the pandemic 😷 this is IMPORTANT
I feel especially grateful that friend’s houses I visited were so accommodating and receptive to my insights! They were happy to know their homes were ADA friendly with wide doorways, spacious bathrooms, and level floors 🤗
Also, have employed this strategy at my cousins’ house! Complimentary ADA “inspection“ 😉
