Accessibility In The Community

In this episode of our popular OT-V series we are discussing community accessibility. The following video discusses the important things to consider when someone with a mobility impairment arrives to a home or building to realize that they may need help to enter.

The following items to consider will help to ensure a safer and easier entrance.

• Understand the type of device you are using and its abilities and limitations

• Understand your own physical abilities

• Identify and assess the help you have available

• Seek out all available entrances and entrance types to select which one best suits your mobility aid or device

• Assess the size of the door you need to enter and what you will encounter upon entry

Watch the video to learn more about accessibility and the solutions available.
