Community transport works well where I live but cannot be compared to the freedom of having an adapted car of your own.
I can now move around by myself and it feels fantastic not having to bother others for help. The combination of an adapted car and electric wheelchair has really improved my situation in an amazing way.
The best thing about my car adaptation is the sense of freedom to come and go as I please. All my daily chores become so much easier to do.
In the past I had to travel with my husband, but in the long run it gets tiring and limiting for both of us to have to co-ordinate our schedules.
I was always an active person before my disability, playing football and moving around. My adapted car allows me to keep some of that feeling.
