Find What Moves You

Each month, BLVD will team up with a company or organization within the mobility community to bring you helpful and insightful information. Our goal with these partnerships is to showcase what is available and what people are talking about so that you have access to the best possible quality of life. We are committed to advancing your knowledge and access to all things mobility. Together, we will help you find what moves you.

Featured Partner - 1800wheelchair 

For the June post, BLVD has partnered with www.1800wheelchair.com which has been serving those who need mobility products due to either short term or long term disabilities since 1997. They are a one stop shop, full service medical supply company.

The team at www.1800wheelchair.com  has taken the time to put together a comprehensive list of the top resources for the aging. It can take hours and hours of research to find the information you are looking for on the internet and sometimes you don’t know where to start. From transportation and mobility to mental health and nursing homes, you are just a click away from helpful information and support with this list.  We hope you find it helpful!

Top Resources and Links for the Aging 

Aging is a part of life, for yourself and loved ones, and it is important to understand the challenges. Further, we should all remember that you are not the first person to experience these transitions. As you or a loved one ages, it's important to remember that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. Below is a useful resource guide targeted aging and related topics.

Author Information

Katie Cummings
Mobility Blogger

My professional background stems from non-profit marketing and fundraising for a large children’s cancer hospital. Every day I was able to make connections and relationships for kids and their families going through devastating times. From securing small donations to large corporate support, it was all about providing hope that one day doctors and researchers would find a cure. It was truly an honor to be a part of something so important.

Just this past year, I came to work alongside my family for BLVD.com, a website dedicated to offering the latest information and resources for people needing mobility products. This was a dream come true for me as I have always wanted to combine more time with my family while still helping others. Our family has been in the mobility industry for over 35 years with the goal of enhancing the quality of life for people with mobility issues. This is the spirit behind BLVD and what I am most excited about sharing in my blog.

I love meeting new people and have found that volunteering is the best way to learn more about others and myself. Coffee keeps me going as do walks my pup "Kirby" and most of all being with family and friends. I invite you to check out my blog to learn more about how "together we can move through life better!"
