Mom just moved into an assisted living facility this past week. It's a nice place, but of course we couldn't get in for a tour, virtual tours only. Mom is in a wheelchair and the counters are too high for her so she can't reach the sink in the bathroom or kitchen. I was astonished and feel guilty for not asking that. I assumed all places are set up for all levels of disability.
I asked if others there are in wheelchairs and they have a few, but they are able to remove cabinet doors underneath and roll closer. Mom is shorter and her chair hits something below so she can't get close enough.
I'll give them credit, they are working with someone (carpenter or contractor of some type) to get them remodeled. Just one more frustration for my mom, who has been in quarantine for basically 3 months. I just want to get in there and get things set up for her but I can't. So frustrating, but I get it. Just wanted to vent.
Also, aren't places required to meet all ADA requirements; wouldn't this be one?
