dependent can be a big morale booster for someone living with a disability."

Health Affairs, a leading journal of health policy, reported that there are significant advantages—for the government and patients—in providing mobility assistance.

"There is consensus among consumers, policymakers, and researchers that assistive technology is important to promoting self-care and independence among people with disabilities," Health Affairs reported. "An estimated 75–90 percent of disabled older community-dwelling adults use some form of assistive technology. Moreover, evidence suggests that such technology might be more efficacious than personal care in reducing functional limitations, might reduce reliance on personal care, and might slow functional decline and lower health-related costs. A recent survey of unpaid caregivers found that 40 percent had obtained assistive technology on behalf of people in their care to 'make things easier.' "

Furthermore, staying in their homes as long as possible is a clear priority for the elderly and patients living with disabilities. "Loss of independence and loss of mobility are what people with disabilities 50 and older say they fear the most as they look to the future," AARP reported in Beyond 50.03: A Report to the Nation on Independent Living and Disability.

George and Mary Cannon strongly endorse Medicare's power mobility benefit.  "It's been a tremendous help to us," George says.
