We have recently remodeled our Sanddollar condominium to make it as wheelchair accessible as possible. Although it is not completely ADA compatible, it does have a number of wheelchair friendly features, including a good size elevator to our second floor unit, large doorways into the condo and to the master bedroom, all tile floors, ramps for door sills, good turning radius in the kitchen, grab bars in the master bedroom bathroom with roll-in shower, roll-under sink, higher commode seat, lever-handled doors and cordless telephones.
Of note, the wheelchair and the shower/commode chair are not stored in our condo. During a guest's stay these may be obtained from FISH for up to 30 days at no charge or may be rented from Advanced Mobility, both listed below. Although there is no charge for these items from FISH, a small donation will help FISH to continue to provide such equipment for those who need it. Contacting FISH prior to your visit will help to ensure that the needed items will be available.
During the coming years we want to continue to improve our condo's wheelchair accessibility features. Such improvements will depend upon our condo's use by wheelchair dependent guests and their feedback. The above pictures show many of these wheelchair friendly features. If you have any questions concerning these features and their ability to accommodate a specific wheelchair or individual, please contact the condo owner.
