I ha ve been asked why I do not do just like anyone else go to my bank to draw out my money?.I am physically handicapped and the bank is just a bit far for me using a walker to get to.Also the bank faces a very busy street so nobody on foot tries to walk in there against the constant flow of cars going into the bank and cars leaving the ba nk. I seem to have forgotten most of you newer mylotters do not know I'm an old l ady of 89 and physically handicapped with a brace on my left leg and I now use a walker.I was asked why I just do not do like the rest of you and go take money out of my bank. I have no car and I do not drive.I cannot walk quite that far and I just explained about the situation at my bank,

Most of the assisted living facilities offer transportation services for their residents and if yours doesn't then in my opinion it is not a very good as it is not looking out for all the needs of the residents.

@Hatley Here in Florida at inspection time not having agood activities or making provisions for residents to get to doctor's appointments etc would be a citation theat would have to be corrected on reinspection

I think you should take it as a compliment that people don't realize or have forgotten your physical age and limitations, clearly your mind isn't suffering from age!

So how do you get your money out of the bank. I have a super sore foot and I will send my daughter's boyfriend to the bank. I will not ever send Adrain or ask him in any way. I did that once and he used my money telling me he would pay me back. Well,I learned my lesson.

I think if you stay in my country, you will love it very much. We have many bank branches situated inside the malls, and many public transportation modes, such as metro, buses and taxi are wheelchair accessible. There are elevators even for overhead bridges, and the pedestrian path is leveled. Many people buy electrical wheelchair, and they can travel everywhere by public transport.

you dont need to go to a bank to get money back, if all you want is a few bills in your wallet, just get cash back when you use your bank card at the register of a grocery store or similar.
