Mobility: Barrier to Participating in Community
One of the barriers for some seniors in participating in community activities is limited mobility. Seniors Dreams is able to help fund a night out at a local restaurant, but mobility to and from an activity continues to be a challenge for some seniors.
Here is a list of items we are seeking to help a senior to be active in the Peterborough community. When it comes to mobility aids, Seniors Dreams uses an affordable system where we ask seniors to give what they can towards the rental of an assistive device such as a wheelchair or cane. For example, we may receive a wheelchair valued at $2000, and a senior contributes $200.00 to rent the item, at a savings of over $1800.00. The $200.00 a senior contributes is then used by Seniors Dreams to help another senior.
