Barrier-Free Park

Making the public more accessible is a goal of many groups across the country. One of those groups recently announced a new barrier-free park will be coming to Michigan!

Construction is set to begin this summer on the project. The former McKinley Park of Fraser, Michigan will provide an accessible and friendly environment for all.

Innovative Mobility: The Tankchair

Similar to the way Amigo Mobility started back in 1968, Brad Soden wanted to find a way for the world to be more accessible for a family member. His wife was injured in an accident and a traditional wheelchair didn’t allow her to fully experience the mountainside on their family camping trips.

After two years of hard work, Soden created the Tankchair. The rugged mobility solution has allowed the world to be more accessible for his wife and many others.

Dear Medicare

Many seniors and people with disabilities are unable to access quality medical equipment and care. For this reason, People for Quality Care has started a website to help share the stories of those affected by Medicare turmoil, and educate the public of the importance of future changes.

www.dearmedicare.com is giving a voice to those who have experienced difficulties with the current policies. If you or someone you know has a story to share, click here to visit their website.
