Elderwheels: a woman in a man's world

Currently the world of commercial transportation vehicles seems to be dominated by men, from taxi and MetroAccess drivers to ambulance transports, not to mention utility and delivery workers.

On a daily basis (and perhaps because I am aware that I am working in a world not often frequented by women), I get noticed when I get out of the van. Or when I enter a medical facility with a client in a wheelchair, sometimes you can barely see me behind it's size.



The medical transportation world is dominated by men. But, If your driver was a woman, how different could your experience be?


At Elderwheels, your driver is a woman. Not just any woman, but an experienced, highly skilled, highly empathetic female rehabilitation worker - - with so so so many years of working with all types of people with different needs and wishes! We have been humbled by the human patients we have met over the years and we see you.


Sometimes our attention to detail gets us into trouble, but for the most part, it is going to make your experience more comfortable and safe!

Who packs up the family to the most minute detail, even if you're just going for a day trip?
