Organizing a space to make it more functional for a wheelchair user

I have watched a lot of TV lately and there seems to be a lot of shows on how to organize your space in an effort to de-clutter. That being said it got me thinking about the unique ways i had to arrange my storage space in my apartment.


My apartment isn’t wheelchair accessible which means the upper cupboards are out of reach so plates and drinking glasses and mugs are store on selves below the microwave which works well. It’s simply about thinking creatively.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    Hi Laura,
    Have just found your blog with a search for “soft-bottomed shoes for my 30 year old with CP.” I can’t wait to come back to it and also direct my daughter, Sara Kate to it. I know she will enjoy and connect. She also is a college graduated and works for a non-profit creating viable, holistic neighborhoods for the less fortunate throughout the USA. She is in a motorized chair and cannot wear hard-bottomed shoes and I have the most difficult time finding suitable shoes for work. She won’t even wear the foldable ones anymore, so they are really slipper shoes, but it is hard to find any that really look appropriate. If you have any insight, it would be invaluable. Thank you and I am anxious to come back and read your posts. Best, Pam

        Thank you for your reply. Since middle school, Sara Kate has had a problem with her heels burning on her footplates. She pushes & postures when she speaks. So…
        I’m impressed with your blog. Pam
