Accessibility Assessment

Find a location or housing suitable for you!

The accessibility of any given location is very difficult to describe. Although several guidelines have been set to establish standards that are increasingly more inclusive and with easy access, this depends on:

– The handicap or functional limitation of each individual
– The type of mobility aide, such as cane, walker, wheelchair
And of course the personality of the individual

Between “accessible” and “universally accessible”,
there is an infinite level of accessibility,
which takes into account an infinite number of functional limitations,
as well as an infinite number of personalities.

 

For example, for some the grab bar next to the toilet is not necessary, but for others it is crucial. A toilet without a grab is therefore accessible for some and not for others.

For this reason, OnRoule.org has chosen to take an “inventory”, without judging the level of accessibility. We believe that it’s the individual’s decision to judge the accessibility of any given location, based on their needs and/or capacities.

No one knows better than you what you require than you.

Do not hesitate to comment on the accessibility of a location based on your functional limitations. It may be that for some that location will not be accessible, and for others yes. The more information you provide, the more informed everyone will be, and the more people will be able to know where they can go or not!

Example comment:
I use an electric wheelchair and have a limited autonomy. This location requires that someone accompany me to help me up the ramp and hold the entrance door open (non-automatic).
