Live Confidently, Wherever You Call Home

We are the only full-time seating and mobility clinic serving clients of all ages and diagnoses in the Richmond area. Melanie Parker, DPT, ATP, SMS has over 15 years of experience with wheelchair and specialty seating prescription. With her SMS (seating and mobility specialist) certification, she is the most highly credentialed therapist in the Richmond area for wheelchair assessment. We are committed to a consumer-based model that focuses on what is most important to our clients and their caregivers. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive evaluation, provide expert feedback, and allow each client to experience different models of wheelchairs and seating options. We have a large variety of wheelchair and seating options in our clinic for clients to trial. We understand that the wrong wheelchair and/or seating will negatively impact a client’s independence, health, and quality of life. We want our clients to feel empowered and confident about the choices they make when choosing their wheelchair and seating. We also evaluate clients for all necessary equipment for the home, including showering devices and beds. We provide detailed, timely documentation to the equipment vendor of your choice, and will advocate for you if your insurance company denies the claim. At Confident Living, we go the extra mile to connect you with community resources to help when funding is an issue.
