As people age and as medicine allows those with physical disabilities to live longer, mobility and accessibility becomes a greater issue. Stairs and terrain are more difficult to manage forcing individuals to either modify their existing homes or move. Consider if someone you knew were suddenly unable to walk and required a wheelchair.
