My mother uses a wheelchair and I can't believe how many people squat down, get in her face, and yell at her like she is deaf, and/or talk really slow like she can't understand them. Sheesh. Just talk normally.

First, never talk down to them. Second, never just but in on the assumption that they need help, just ask if there is anything you can do. Third, do not hover over them, you are probably giong to cause problems by being in the way. Fourth, never ever just grab them to help them without permission. Fifth, never assume that they can not hear or understand what you are saying to some one else. Sixth, never ever raise your voice. Seventh, No means NO if they tell you NO step back and shut up.
