Increasing a person’s ability to navigate their environment or provide access to life in ways they could not before you came along is a very special activity.
Switching out dependence for independence is the same.
Improvements most often come through education or access (especially, geographical or financial).
So anything you can do to listen to end users or groups that assist people that might become your end users. And then respond to what you have heard. And then promote the joy of users will be more than useful.
I have seen this.
My friend with Muscular Distrophy wanted a travel agent so he could holiday as everyone else could.
My Mother was liberated by an electric scooter that she used to go to the shops independently.
I had something to do with a program that built yachts to disabled kids.
A friend ran a program that built and donated wheelchairs out of donated bike parts for people that could not afford a wheelchair.
The willingness, commitment and ability to do these things is wondrous.
Good luck Tom.
