Cycling with a wheelchair bike is a special experience
The senior center is very happy with the bike. They can now go outside with the residents at any time. They are no longer dependent on the weather and the residents do not have to be asked in a hurry, they are now free to choose when and where they want to cycle.
Cycling with the wheelchair bicycle is a special experience for the elderly, says employee Serge of the OLV Senior Centre. It's important for the residents to go to a different environment, it's extra nice when it's in nature. The staff member also experienced that the residents became emotional from the bike ride. The view of the water, for example, brings back memories and sometimes they cycle past their parental home or past the bakery where they came in the past. Serge Vermijlen of senior center OLV: "Life is finite, these are moments that they take with them and that they enjoy".
