Disabled People Struggle to Find Accessible Phoenix Apartments

apts phoenix: wheelchairAs a follow up to my article on Phoenix apartments I found this and wanted to link to it.

Finding suitable housing is one of the problems facing people with disabilities . Often Phoenix apartments and homes are not equiped with handicap amenities.

Space is also a problem. “When your bottom is stuck in a wheelchair you actually need a little bit more room, not less,” Wheels said. “So they try to put us in 500 square feet and wonder why we can’t have a life,” says Helen Wheels, 48, and severely handicapped. There is not always room to have furniture or even get around the bed, she said. She wants to have a place for a washer and dryer rather than having to go “clear across the compound.” It is impossible to go through doors and carry a basket without spilling the clean clothes, Wheels said.

Some Phoenix apartments need to be built or renovated with the disabled in mind according to http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/6P8c4O/wildcat.arizona.edu/news/disabled-people-struggle-to-find-accessible-housing-1.2215473.
