Mission Statement

Easy Does It Emergency Services is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that provides assistance to individuals with physical disabilities and the elderly living independently in the City of Berkeley. Should a physically disabled or elderly person experience an unforeseen crisis or a temporary lapse in his or her own regular attendant, transportation, and/or repair services, that person can call upon Easy Does It for assistance at the time of need.

Description

EDI has three main programs: Emergency Attendant Services, Wheelchair Transportation, and Personal-Assistive Repair. Easy Does It (EDI) has integrated the Independent Living philosophy fully into our programs; this philosophy assures that people with disabilities maintain full control of all aspects of their lives, and within that, acknowledges that in order for people with disabilities to be independent they need to rely on other Personal Attendant services such as assistance in hygienic routines, lifts and transfers, and meal preparation/feeding. These services must in turn recognize that they operate as directed by the client; attendant, transportation and working mobility equipment is key to ensure full integration of disabled persons in their community.
