Attractive, accessible housing is essential for children and adults with disabilities as they go about their everyday lives.
This may mean finding a home that is accessible or can be adapted for someone who has a physical disability and uses a wheelchair to get around. It may involve adapting a home for someone who has a hearing or vision impairment. It may be top-of-mind for a growing number of Baby Boomers, empty-nesters, retirees and older Americans -- people living longer and developing vision, hearing and some physical disabilities as they age -- who are concerned about finding homes they can grow old in as an alternative to nursing homes and retirement communities. Or it could mean building a new, accessible home for all members of your family to enjoy throughout their lives.
