 Tips on Accessibility from Meeting Lifes Challenges

UNIVERSAL DESIGN FOR ACCESSIBILITY:
By incorporating accessibility features into the overall design of the home in a tasteful and barely perceivable way, Universal Design allows use by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design. Learn more about this design philosophy and how it can make your next apartment, home or remodel better whether you are young with children, elderly wishing to stay in your home, or disabled.

For more tips on making your home more accessible,  look for Shelley's book, "Home Accessibility: 300 Tips for Making Life Easier," available online or at a library or  bookstore near you.
