Home Modifications

Just what does it take to make a living space accessible? Are you thinking about a child who will grow up in a house or a parent who is just beginning to use a wheelchair in their home? Maybe you as a wheelchair user would like to make everyday life in your home easier and more enjoyable. Regardless, you will find some helpful resources here.

We'd like to gather stories from those of you who have stories to tell about how you modified your living space. If you'd like to tell your story let us know.
