By this category we mean that the majority of the community are cognitively aware and just need a wheelchair to assist with mobility. This could be spinal cord injury, stroke, or other disability like MS. Regardless of the reasoning just understand that people in wheelchairs can enjoy this programming as well.
People that use wheelchairs, in most cases, are completely capable of participating just as much as any other adult/child. We understand though that if your community is mostly in a wheelchair it can be hard to see them dancing or moving, but we assure you that a wheelchair never stops Hollis. All of the programs we offer can include people that use wheelchairs or can be tailored for an entire group of people in wheelchairs.
Hollis has over 20 years experience working and caregiving people in wheelchairs. Currently Hollis offers private assisted yoga for people in wheelchairs. Hollis also holds a Colorado CNA license and in the past has been an LPN. Hollis delights in being able to adjust Let’s Dance to include everyone and people in wheelchairs have a special place.
