The Winter months can pose many difficulties due to the adverse weather we face. It can be an especially tough season to navigate for individuals who need accessibility solutions. Ice and snow can significantly hinder access and entry to your home and parking spots.
Conventional methods of entry like stairs and sidewalks can be dangerous when covered in ice and snow. If you use a walking aid or feel unsteady on your feet, even the smallest patches of ice can become worrying. It also becomes much more challenging for wheelchair and mobility scooter users to navigate the sidewalks and streets due to inclement. On top of this, there is the ice on driveways and snow blocked accessible parking places to deal with.
