Who Needs an Accessible Home? You Do!

Myth: The need for accessibility is low because only a small percentage of people have a need.

Fact: 60% of all new houses are projected to have a resident with accessibility needs over the lifetime of the house and most homes have visitors from time to time with accessibility needs.

Note: Nothing in these requirements prevents the use of designs, products, or technologies, such as an elevator or a lift, provided they result in substantially equivalent or greater accessibility and usability.
