Mobility Helpline: Mobility Support

People with mobility impairment are unable to use one or more of their extremities and may struggle with walking, holding, or lifting objects. Mobility issues can be caused by a range of different conditions, from aging to congenital disabilities, to diseases and even freak accidents.

Coping with a mobility impairment can be very difficult, but you should not worry. There are plenty of resources readily available to you and your loved ones. ExtendaTouch is open for everyone experiencing limited mobility, and it is entirely free for everyone.

The ExtendaTouch caregiver support group provides online tools for its members to share information and support with actual people who face the same everyday experiences and challenges. Consider us your go-to mobility helpline whenever you require some helpful information and personalized support.

How can ExtendaTouch help me?

The ExtendaTouch group consists of unpaid family caregivers across the entire U.S. ExtendaTouch provides online tools for its members to share information and support; perhaps even current news about:

  • Managing side effects
  • Tools and helpful aids
  • Treatment and therapy options
  • Getting around with and without help

You can feel safe expressing yourself or reading about your most pressing questions about mobility. ExtendaTouch is anonymous and secure to assist you in meeting other family caregivers to find information and support. ExtendaTouch doesn't provide medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

My dad was pretty weak and used a walker. My aunt, who is still alive, has one leg amputated. I spent quite a bit of time with her as she went through rehab and worked with artificial devices. She now uses a wheelchair and a scooter.
