  1. My dad is getting older, and it's getting harder and harder for him to get out. He used to go play with the grandkids all the time, and spend most of his free time outside. Now, he sits inside a lot. I hate seeing him sad, so I have been trying to figure out something that will make him happier. With a wheelchair like this, he would be about to get out a lot more. No, he wouldn't be able to do everything he used to, but there are a lot of things he would be able to do again.
