How NEMT Helps Seniors Who Use a Wheelchair, Scooter, or Walker

What Seniors Can Expect From Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT)


Aging can be quite a journey, and many seniors are living with conditions that may affect their mobility. Utilizing a wheelchair, walker, or scooter to get around is common practice for many, and traveling around town for medical appointments, groceries, and get-togethers can be a challenge, especially when you are unable to drive yourself.

What could be the solution for seniors that utilize assistive mobility devices to travel comfortably and independently?

That’s where professional, private Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) comes in!

Wheelchair-Accessible Transportation for Seniors

Wheelchairs, scooters and mobility aids can come in many different forms and sizes, from standard sizes to wider bariatric-sized. Seniors need vehicles that are easy to get in and out of. Having to fold up, load and transfer from your scooter into a vehicle can take a lot of energy and may require a friend or family member to be available to help.

Unfortunately, many seniors miss out on events and appointments because of lack of available transportation or difficulty in the process of getting there.
