Cat Parmenter - Driving Miss Daisy

Driving Miss Daisy

I have been using Driving Miss Daisy since February 2018, after my highly specialised drive-from-wheelchair car provided by Motability was declared a write off. I’ve had Cerebral Palsy from birth & after several years of deterioration, I use an electric wheelchair for the majority of the day, and travel with a working assistance dog provided by Canine Partners, named Etta.

Driving Miss Daisy has been a lifeline, after my highly specialised drive-from-wheelchair car provided by Motability was declared a write off. That car was my key to independence; without it, isolation and depression set in.

She also suffers from hydrocephalus and epilepsy, which cause life threatening seizures, and has spent her life in and out of hospitals, including Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool and Leighton Hospital in Crewe.

Mobility Solutions Cabin Car on van

The first brand-new Cabin Car mobility scooter has been delivered to a happy customer, who is set to enjoy features including reverse camera parking sensors.

Mrs Jordan in Knightswood, Glasgow, is is delighted with her purchase from Mobility Solutions. It is the world’s first scooter with reverse camera parking sensors, remote central locking and a heater. In fact, the Cabin Car has many comforts of a car whilst still being a mobility scooter.

Mrs Jordan said, “I’ve been telling everyone about it, all of my friends are desperate to see it and I can’t wait to show it off.

“All of the features will help me so much, if I was going out before I would have to wrap up with lots of layers but now I can just turn the heating on!”
