TIP



Narration:
For adults with mobility impairments, living on one single floor is the best solution. You may be able to convert a first-floor den or living room into a bedroom or even build an addition, depending on your finances. And an accessible bathroom will make daily care much easier.

The second floor can be closed off, if necessary, or used by a caregiver.
