What's more, Dixie Lodge educational programming enlists the services of business people, entrepreneurs, financial experts, athletes, product specialists and other professionals to conduct weekly seminars in their area of expertise.
While being a large hurdle, regaining independence is a priority for most individuals who have sustained catastrophic injuries. One of the biggest struggles of these individuals is relying on others for transportation. Whether it is going to appointments, visiting friends and family, or participating in community leisure, all individuals deserve the ability to freely travel as needed. Once an individual regains the ability to drive themselves, the sense of independence exponentially increases. This promotes an overall higher quality of life as well as giving individuals the opportunity to remain active.
