Advocacy groups for the disabled have been pushing for accessible housing for years and our efforts have fallen on deaf ears. The disabled just do not have a powerful or visible lobbying group.
Now we finally may see some action!
The retired population is realizing that significant numbers of seniors have a disability of one kind or another. So they are finally joining us in the fight for accessible housing.
Seniors wield political power. The various lobby groups that represent seniors are usually successful in accomplishing their goals. Let us hope any legislation or action that results will help all the disabled – NOT just seniors with disabilities.
We need to all keep squeaking our wheels no matter how old or young we are.
