The Compassion Experience is finally coming close enough to my home for me to visit!!  I would like to go, but I would also like to bring my niece, who is in a wheelchair, and my mother, who has health issues that mean she cannot walk for long periods of time without sitting and resting.  Would they be able to go through it with me?

Hi Jamie! I'm so excited that the mobile experience is not only in your area but that your niece and mother want to go with you also! And don't worry, we definitely want everyone to have the opportunity to go through this experience that wants to and so we have made it handicap accessible and not so long that people get exhausted from all of the standing or too much walking. 

There is an electronic ramp that wheelchairs are taken up on to get onto the main level and once up there, the entire tour is accessible with no issues. My co-worker is actually in a wheelchair and she has done it before and loved it with no problems! The entire thing is about twenty minutes long and so as long as your mom can stand for about twenty minutes, I think she would also enjoy it :). It's not a long walk, just a few short steps to each room. I pray that the three of you have a great time!
