A Closer Look at Disability in Chicago

Navigating the bustling city of Chicago can be a daunting task, especially for 10% of its population who live with disabilities. This statistic translates to over half a million individuals, with about 66% of them being over the age of 65. Each faces unique mobility challenges that complicate their access to routine medical care.

BriteLift, a trusted transportation broker in Chicagoland and Southeast Wisconsin, offers non-emergency medical transportation for people with disabilities. Let’s take a closer look:

The Special Needs of People with Disabilities

People with disabilities often encounter significant barriers in accessing healthcare that meets their specific needs. These barriers can include physical obstacles to entering healthcare facilities, inadequate transportation options, and equipment that does not accommodate handicapped mobility needs. Such challenges not only hinder their ability to receive care but also impact their overall health outcomes.

Autonomy and Independence

Imagine having a disability that makes moving around difficult. But you still need to get to important medical appointments or family gatherings. Your loved ones may not always be available to drive you where you need to be.

The ability to travel independently is crucial for the mental, physical, emotional, and social well-being of seniors and those in the disabled community. Autonomy in mobility increases their ability to participate in social, educational, and employment opportunities, essential for a fulfilling and integrated life. Independence in transportation is directly linked to improved mental health, as it alleviates feelings of isolation and dependency, enhancing an individual’s sense of control and self-esteem.
