ACCESSIBILITY & VISITABILITY
An area, building space or home that may be approached, entered, and used by individuals with physical disabilities.
A continuous, unobstructed path connecting accessible elements and spaces in a building or within a site that can be negotiated by a person with a severe disability using a wheelchair & which is also usable and safe for people with other disabilities.
Adaptable design allows some features of a dwelling to be changed to meet the needs of a person with a disability. Essential design elements are included as integral features, while provisions are made to allow other features to be added as needed. To qualify as "adaptable," it must be possible for changes to be made quickly without the use of skilled labor and without changing the inherent structure or materials.
A home where it is possible for a disabled person to visit a friend and enjoy a meal without having to be lifted up a step or being unable to get through the doorway. Such homes are ramped or provide at least one level access at grade and a 32” wide clear passage space and interior pathway.
