Living with a disability takes a period of acceptance and adjustment. Most of us tend to take our health for granted, or at least struggle for acceptance in the moments after it’s gone. Every aspect of your life can change with a disability and that is tough to come to grips with.
But the important thing to remember is that you can come to grips with it – as difficult as it may be. Let’s look at a few different aspects of daily life and how they may be impacted by your disability.
Employment – When your health declines or you unexpectedly find yourself disabled, it’s tough to retain a sense of value. But there are significantly large employers out there who still value your contributions. Take a look at some of these larger corporations and their hiring practices for disabled employees.
Home Access – Everything around your home changes when you become disabled. It’s time to rethink the layout of your kitchen and bathroom. You’ll need to look at everything from the accessibility of your entry ways to the type of shower in your bathroom. Home access is at the foundation of living a quality life. You need to be able to get out of your home for employment and recreation. Ramps and stairlifts can help.
Transportation – More and more public transportation is becoming handicap accessible. This is a critical element to being able to maintain a sense of normalcy in your life in the wake of a disability. There are also plenty of options for installing vehicle lifts as well.
