hi all need some advice/info.
Just to give you the basics.
this is the first mobility car my mum has ordered.
she lives on her own and can’t drive.
so either me or my wife everyday pick her up from her house and drop her off at my house (4miles away) and also drop her back off at home. This is usually at 7/8am and back home 4/6pm.
this is so she is not alone during the day and can spend time with her grandchildren.
apart from this we also take her shopping, out on family trips or to other friends/family/doctors appointments. Even if this is during the day when I am at work, I take time off/bank time/use breaks to do this.
with the fact she is less and less mobile and sometimes requires a wheelchair especially on long family trips and finds it difficulty getting in and out of the family cars we have. We decide a motabilty car which is high enough that she doesn’t need to ‘step down into it’ and one which could fit her wheelchair and also our own family stuff I.e child seat/pram etc would be practical.
my concern is that due to my mum not living at the same address and is currently using our own cars both for her and our own needs if we did the same with the motbility car it would be breaking rules.
The problem would be then for us to ‘only’ use the motbility car for her needs and practically/logically as we do currently it would mean extra trips/time. I.e any trip/journey where I am going work in between helping my Mum.
any help/advice on this is really appreciated and thank you beforehand :).
