Mobility and Accessibility
Individuals with a physical disability often need assistive devices such as manual wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, crutches, or canes to obtain mobility. Limitations may be due to weakness and poor balance, injuries, amputation, illnesses and diseases. Having accessibility into and around one’s home, as well as being able to get out into the community is vital to one’s well-being. Individuals may need a wheelchair accessible van, transportation services, wheelchair ramp, or a stair lift. These resources help individuals to improve their mobility in their home and community.
