Across the country, innovative products are being developed all the time that help people who are caring for loved ones in wheelchairs and scooters. Individuals who are caring for the elderly, as well as parents of children with disabilities, like this mother, constantly struggle to shop and keep them comfortable all at once.
Drew Ann Long was having a difficult time taking her daughter with special needs out with her on errands. Along with watching her two-year-old son, she needed to help her daughter along in her wheelchair while maneuvering a shopping cart at the same time. She was eager to find something that would help her include her daughter in all of her errands, but there was nothing available on the market.
So, she ended up designing something on her own that would help her, as well as people across the country, comfortably shop with loved ones in need. The result is “Caroline’s Cart,” named for Drew’s young daughter with special needs.
This amazing but simple invention is sweeping grocery stores around the world and changing lives. It provides a way for them to move around a shop comfortably and accompany their relatives, caregivers, or spouses without having to use a scooter or wheelchair.
Today, the carts are distributed around the country and can be found in such stores as Food Lion, Giant, Kroger, Target, Walmart, and many more. Check them out the next time you go to the store. Watch this clip to learn more about these incredible shopping carts!
