What is an

Accessible Kitchen?

An accessible kitchen, sometimes called a disabled kitchen, has been modified to remove barriers and enhance safety for those with physical limitations, the elderly, and those recovering from injuries.

There are a wide variety of accessible appliances and modifications available for those with limited mobility.

For many people who have mobility and balance problems, kitchens for disabled people can change their lives for the better and give them a sense of independence.

Why are Accessible

The kitchen can be a frustrating place for those who experience limited mobility, lack of balance, or other physical issues. Reaching things you want, trying to wash a dish, or putting a pot on the stove can all be almost impossible for some people.

In these cases, many people with mobility issues need to live with someone who can complete household tasks, or live in a facility where assistance is readily available.
