EMERGENCY SUPPLIES TO TAKE ON YOUR TRAVELS WITH YOUR MOBILTY SCOOTER

My friend Jack has two mobility scooters.  A  newly bought one, more compact in size for the home, and a larger used mobility scooter heone he bought many years ago for his outside adventures.  Despite having Parkinson’s Disease and  joint problems, his determination to stay independent is beyond belief.
Recently, for the first time ever, Jack had a minor breakdown in the local park only a block from his home.  Minor, but it turned into a total fiasco involving a large number of people, because Jack wasn’t prepared in any way for an emergency to happen.  Because of his Parkinson’s, Jack speaks slowly and softly and cannot walk quickly at all.  He is difficult to move and hard to hear.  Below, I’ve listed the things I’ve suggested he may want to take with him in future.  After all, that’s what you’re mobility scooter accessory pack is for!  A little bit of emergency planning will take the sting out of any unexpected situation.
So here we go:
  • Why didn’t I charge up my cell phone fully before I’d left home?  It went dead at the moment I needed it most.
  • A cheat-sheet kept in my bag, showing others how to operate my mobility scooter would have been a great asset.  Particularly how to stop, turn it off and collapse it for transportation.
  • Bottled water and some quarters.  Stress made me more thirsty than usual.
  • My next set of scheduled medical pills and an extra depend (incontinence diaper).  I’ll always keep an emergency supply in my pack now.
  • My medical bracelet, explaining my condition.  In future, I’ll take my medical card too.
  • Also, my mobility scooter insurance details would have been helpful to have, particularly when the scooter ended up in private flowerbed having destroyed all in its path (don’t ask.)
  • So, keep essential information about your scooter in your accessory pack –  keep a note about the size, weight and details of your mobility scooter insurance.

Happy Travels!

    I don’t normally leave comments, but I’m so pleased I had to tell you. I was looking at the article about choosing a used mobility scooter as my insurance won’t pay and I needed to get a used one. I read the other articles about Emergency Supplies to take on your travels with you mobility scooter and the mobility scooter insurance. I read all three because It’s the first time I bought a scooter. It helped me check a battery before I negotiated a price of a second hand scooter (yuk! the state of it) and got $250 discount. The cheat sheet on my travels helped (I don’t speak too good, I had a stroke). I wouldn’t have even thought about that, or about mobility scooter insurance until I read the article. It was very little extra $ for the peace of mind. Thanks.
