I have been spending a little time at Laguna Honda skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility in San Francisco. Many, perhaps the majority, of the residents get around using wheelchairs. Laguna Honda is a huge place with multi-wings, multi-floors, and long hallways. Here is a link to their website, and a picture which gives you a partial but incomplete idea of the size of the place, Click Here. Although some of the residents have motorized wheelchairs, many do not although having one would be a tremendous mobility benefit. In light of all of the ongoing California and federal deficit and budget talks, even if a resident of Laguna Honda could effectively advocate on behalf of himself or herself through the maze of public benefit rules and regulations, undoubtedly providing people with motorized wheelchairs is not a priority. But this certainly would be a good opportunity where nonprofits and corporations could provide helpful assistance.
