Thirty years ago this month, the civil rights of people with disabilities were changed forever with the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) on July 26th, 1990. On that date, laws were enacted in the U.S. that prohibit discrimination against Americans who are living with disabilities, including those with mobility challenges.
As we celebrate the ADA’s 30th anniversary, Amramp invites you to check out the video below to explore the ways you can support the ADA by posting pictures and comments on social media using the special hashtags #ThanksToTheADA and #ADA30. Show your support for the ADA which has helped ensure that millions of Americans with disabilities have access to indoor and outdoor public spaces, events, and facilities.
Summer is Here – Spend Time Outdoors with Accessibility Solutions from Amramp
It’s that time of year when everyone loves to leave the confines of home by getting outside to enjoy a beautiful day in the yard with family and friends. However, people with mobility challenges who use a wheelchair, a walker, or other assistive devices often need one or more accessibility solution outside their home to be able to safely and independently enjoy being outdoors.
Some of our exterior residential solutions include:
- Portable Ramps for accessing decks and patios
- Stair Lifts and Vertical Platform Lifts for access to the ground level from second level decks
- Pool Lifts to ensure safety and maximize enjoyment for people with mobility challenges
- Outdoor Lighting that includes motion sensors to automatically illuminate your surroundings
Additionally, we recommend that outdoor pathways should be smooth and level without grass, pavers, sand, wood chips, pebbles, and any other debris. This will ensure that your loved one who uses a wheelchair, walker, or scooter can access all areas of the property including gardens, pools and driveways.
For a FREE consultation on all the ways Amramp can help you create an outdoor space that is accessible to everyone, contact us today!
