Advanced Wheelchair Skills Class

Shorter hospital and rehabilitation stays may not allow enough time to learn important wheelchair skills, as we may need to brush-up or learn new skills to remain independent. This lack of wheelchair skill may lead to secondary conditions or isolation. These classes will help you be more efficient in the use of your wheelchair. Come and join us in some practical advice from those who know and have been doing it for years. You’re never too old to learn something new or you might help someone just starting this new journey of their life.

Week 1- Transferring
Chair to Furniture; Chair to Bed;
