If you missed yesterday’s post here it is. So now that your needs have been established it is important to start looking own your own, for your living arrangements most communities have wait lists that are years in terms of accessible housing. I recommend taking time to search kijiji.ca if you are in Canada and craiglist if American.
Things to consider when searching for apartments
Even if the building looks accessible does it meet your needs?
The fact the building has an elevator in my case wasn’t good enough to allow me to sign the lease. In my case I spent almost a year looking for a place with focus placed on the width of the bathroom door. My chair generally speaking fit well everywhere in the apartments I still couldn’t move my wheelchair into the bathroom. Experience says it is not good enough to ask on the phone if your chair will fit through the door you must go and look for yourself and try to gently get through the door you do not want to force it though and wreck the wood of the door frame.
