Looking help on traveling with my mother who is a paraplegic (needs an electric wheelchair, which isn’t portable per se, to move around). My family is planning a wedding in Lakewood New Jersey at the end of March and us living in the Midwest makes it a little tricky. I would appreciate some advice on the best way to travel there.
Flying sounds like the best idea but 1. despite airlines being clear that they could work with my mother’s situation, it would be nice to know how well they actually accommodate and 2. We don’t know how easy it is to get transportation in NY especially if we have to get to Lakewood.
On the other hand, driving could work but the minivan we have at home isn’t travel friendly. (I called around for rentals in our hometown, Milwaukee, but they are very expensive and restrictive).
Any advice would be extremely helpful.
