Mom Makes Incredible Shopping Cart To Assist The Elderly And Children With Disabilities

Stores like Food Lion, Giant, Kroger, Target, Walmart and other stores are now offering parents with special needs children or senior citizens and easier way to get around their stores thanks to Caroline’s Carts.

The simple task of running some errands with her daughter was almost impossible for Drew Ann Long. According to Little Things, it was a struggle for her to care for her special needs daughter, while maneuvering a cart and having her 2-year-old son in tow.

That’s until she came up with Caroline’s Cart, named after her daughter. A Caroline’s Cart is a shopping cart that offers a large seat in front where a special needs child or elderly person could comfortably sit.

“It provides parents and caregivers a viable option to transport a child through a store while grocery shopping, without having the impossible task of having to maneuver a wheelchair and a traditional grocery cart at the same time,” Long’s website says.

Caroline’s Carts now help countless caretakers around the U.S. One of those was a woman who was shopping at a Harris Teeter store and asked if they had a cart that could accommodate her 91-year-old mother. Luckily, they had a Caroline’s Cart available for her.
