People who suffer from a catastrophic injury often need assistive devices to help them live life. The issue here is that these assistive devices are often costly, and not everyone will have the funds available to purchase and upkeep those devices. When insurance or provincial is available, the wait time for devices can be lengthy.
A recent news story out of New Brunswick shows just how difficult it can be to get the devices necessary for even basic functions after a catastrophic injury. The issue is that the Red Cross supplies wheelchairs for people in the providence, but some people are waiting much longer than what they should in order to get the wheelchair they need or to get the wheelchair maintained. This began when the Red Cross took over the duties of four companies last year.
