Need help with restrictions for handicapped husband in independent living complex.
A handicapped person can live here if the spouse living here with them can care for them. We have been here a year. 110 apartments. We are age 70 but the average age here is over 80. Many people have the sit down style walkers and many have scooters. So far my husband is the only one with a motorized wheelchair. This morning I was told now he can't go on an elevator alone. I liked this place because it gave him so much freedom and he could easily socialize. Is there a law that covers this? I think it is an arbitrary restriction of his freedom. Two elderly people were in the elevator with my husband. His WC became stuck and no one could reach the button to open the door. Someone on another floor got the elevator and the door opened. Till then the 3 people were stuck. They are blaming my husband. I think the 2 other people should have stationed themselves next to the control buttons. But now I have to deal with the ultimatum about him always needing someone with him in the elevator Help. Thanks, christine
