Changes

If your fingers lost the ability to grip, what would you have to change, just to boil a pan of water? Or to take a shower?

If you could no longer walk, how would you get up the step into your house? Or upstairs?

As an issue close to my heart, I am undertaking a long term personal project, to document living with a wheelchair user. So far, it’s mostly a documentation of the changes we have had to make to, and within our home to accommodate the not just the wheelchair, but the disability itself.

I could probably document just the ramps in our house as a project on it’s own, but there is more to it than just ramps.
