    I agree. A wheelchair accessible environment is one that is barrier-free and safe for anyone with a disability to take care of their essential daily needs. The problem is that many hmes are not designed to be accessible for wheelchairs or other assistive devices.
    But, homes can be modified for accessibility and it doesn’t have to cost a lot. Follow the link for some ideas to power wheelchair home modifications!
