Wheelchair Etiquette
  • Relax and make eye contact.

  • Sit down when possible to give the person a more comfortable viewing angle.

  • Ask before helping, and don't provide the assistance until your offer has been accepted. Listen to any instructions the person may want to give.

  • Make sure the person is ready before you start pushing the wheelchair.

  • Don't lean on the person's chair or put your feet on it. Many view such behavior as overly intrusive.
