THE BRONX - One organization is offering free help to adults with physical disabilities. 

Independence Care System helps adults trade in their old wheelchairs for motorized ones, or fixes their existing devices, free of charge. 

Among the other services the organization offers are home care, health care and social services. It also develops personalized care plans.

To become a member of Independence Care System, a person must be a Medicaid recipient who lives in Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn or Queens. The resident must also be over 18 years old and in need of home care.

On March 11, the organization is teaming up with the Morrisania Diagnostic and Treatment Center to offer free services, which include wheelchair maintenance tips and a one-on-one meeting with a technician.
