My father is temporarily disabled after knee surgery; he can barely bend his knees and is now learning to walk again.
While he is recovering, I need to drive him from Nashville (where he fell and hurt his knees) to his home in Ohio. None of the cars available to us can fit him comfortably with his legs extended, so we need to rent something larger.
My question: what kind of car should we rent? A minivan? The criteria are:
[li]Relatively low to the ground (so Dad can hoist himself in with minimal difficulty);[/li][li]Roomy (since he can’t bend his knees, he’ll need to stretch his legs); and[/li][li]Available from car rental agencies (I usually rent cheap subcompacts so I don’t know their selection).[/li][/ul]
If you have experience driving a person with limited mobility, I’d welcome your advice.
Thanks in advance,
