Imagine being totally independent, self-sufficient, recently retired, driving yourself everywhere, enjoying retirement. Then, suddenly, you develop an unexpected health condition that impacts your ability to walk, much less drive. You need wound care services daily for the next 60 days. You live miles from the wound care clinic and your healthcare provider. Your spouse is unable to drive you daily and you have no other family in the area to transport you to appointments. Public transportation is available, but at an hourly rate that is not affordable for extended use. You require a minimum of three hours daily for the 60-day treatment. You have used your friends so much they are no longer able to get you to the places you need to go – doctor appointments, treatments, lab work, the grocery store, pharmacy, any where. You are at risk of an amputation and further life-threatening complications, but have no affordable transportation options. It happened to Leo. It can happen to you.
