We have many different types of Wheelchair vans in our fleet. We have minivans, regular sized vans, the “Mobility Vans,” and even a ‘bus’ type vehicle we use for special events and for extra heavy patients & wheelchairs.

We have two”Mobility Vehicles.” You may have seen them around town, as they’re specially-designed to transport wheelchair-confined people to wherever they need to be. Being in a wheelchair doesn’t mean traveling has to be any more dangerous or inconvenient than not being in a wheelchair.

All of our mobility vehicles are designed to fit any kind of scooter or wheelchair you have… and if you don’t have your own wheelchair, that’s no problem: we have wheelchairs in our mobility vehicles that you can use for your trip.

Mobility Vehicles are side-loaders, which means the ramp extends out the side door for easy city-loading & unloading. Once inside the vehicle, your wheelchair is secured to the vehicle with 4-point straps and you are seat-belted into your chair for the duration of the trip.

Our vans are rear-loaders and are equipped with hydraulic wheelchair lifts. These vans can accommodate two wheelchair-bound patients and two additional escorts at once.

Our minivans are rear-loaders with ramps. These cans can accommodate one wheelchair-bound patient and one escort.
Finally, we have the large van: the newest addition to our fleet. This van can safely accommodate three wheelchair-bound patients and SIX escorts plus our mobility expert. We use this vehicle for our special events but we also utilize its versatility on a daily basis to get our clients to all their appointments as efficiently as possible.

Thank you for choosing Milford Family Medical Center. The following information will assist you in getting the most out of your patient visit.

Our regular office hours are from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Call before 9 a.m. to schedule a same-day appointment for sick care.
We understand that no one plans to be sick. So when urgent visits become necessary, we will make every effort to find a time that will minimize your wait. In the interest of time, it may be necessary to schedule your appointment with another medical provider. It is always helpful if you call in advance of your visit to the clinic.
It is helpful to schedule your routine and annual check-ups well in advance. This allows adequate time with your physician.
To provide better patient care, we do not interrupt our physicians during patient visits to answer calls from pharmacies. Therefore, it is unlikely that your local pharmacist will be able to renew your prescription while you wait. If you need a prescription renewed, please contact your pharmacist in advance.
Most patients on maintenance medications require periodic follow-up with a physician. Please ask your doctor how often you should come in for follow-up care.
Having access to your patient records allows us to provide the best response to telephone inquiries. When you call, our clinic receptionist will ask for a brief reason for your call and will obtain your name and phone number. She will then route your question to your physician's nurse who will return your call as promptly as possible.

Please contact MHCS Clinic Administrator, at 402-646-4622 for additional information.

NE Lifespan Respite Network Brochure

 

Taking care of yourself - is one of the best ways to help your loved ones!

 

Respite is help for the helpers.  Respite is a break for unpaid family caregivers caring for a loved one with special needs.  Respite allows the family caregiver time away to care for their personal needs.  Research shows that when family caregivers take time for themselves, they improve their physical and emotional health.

 

You can use respsite to:  Go to the grocery store, visit the doctor, have lunch with a friend, take a nap, or anything else you need or want to reduce stress.

 

A family caregiver is a person who provides ongoing care for an individual unable to care for themself due to age, physical or mental disability, or illness.  If your loved one cannot be left alone due to a special need, we can help.

 

Caregiving is rewarding, but also demanding and stressful.  We offer information, education, and support.  We are the place to contact to discuss your respite needs.

 

Who provides respite?  There is some flexibility in finding providers.  Your local respite coordinator can assist you with finding a provider in your area.  You may be able to use family members, friends, or neighbors as paid providers.  Depending on funding source, other possibilities include: organizations, camps, a trusted agency, a local volunteer-led organization or group, volunteer-led school-based program, equine program, faith-based or other approved activities.  While your loved one is attending an activity, you are getting a break-and that's what respite is all about!

 

You can locate screened respite providers at nrrs.ne.gov/respite.  Click on "Find a Provider."

The Nebraska Family Helpline at (888) 866-8660​​ makes it easier for families to obtain assistance by providing a single contact point 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Trained Helpline operators screen calls to assess immediate safety needs, identify the potential level of a behavioral health crisis, make recommendations or referrals to appropriate resources, and help callers connect to emergency resources or providers. The Helpline is supervised by licensed mental health professionals.

Family Helpline operators also can connect eligible families to the Family Navigator Service.

Available within 24 to 72 hours after a Helpline referral, Family Navigator helps families identify existing community-based services and provides support from people who have had personal experience in the system.
