WE'RE DISABLED AND PROUD

I am on a mission to show the world that disability is anything but boring. That starts with making over mobility devices and ditching the medical grey, for colours that show our true personalities. After all I am disabled and fabulous and my mobility aids should be too. But Not Your Grandma’s is so much more than just a mobility aid business. 

About OUR FOUNDER

I'm Hannah, and I believe that disabled people are so much more than what society tells us.

Society has an outdated view of disabled people and I am on mission to change that but it starts with you.

Not Your Grandma’s is a community first and foremost. When I was diagnosed no one told me I was disabled, no one told me how to use mobility aids and no one handed me a guide to handling it all. It was the disability community that saved me and taught me to be proud of my disability and I want that for you too. 

Maybe your newly diagnosed and feeling a bit lost. Maybe you're not but still as confused about how to actually handle all of this.

80% of disabled people aren’t born disabled but become disabled. 

I never knew this but once I heard it clicked with me. I wasn’t failing at being disabled, it’s just no one told me how to be disabled and there wasn’t any real representation of living a happy life with disability.

What you will find here

The Handbook

No one gave me a handbook but I certainly wished one existed so I made my own! Check out the handbook section of the website for an indepth look at living with disability and chronic illness with a helping of humour!

Community

The biggest weapon I found was having a solid community of other chronic illness folx that really got what it was like. They might be all over the world but I knew they always had my back.
