Fox Run Senior Living Provides for Disability Independence

Category: Health & Wellness

Author: Anthony Stroud, Plant Operations Director

July 26th is National Disability Independence Day, which commemorates the signing of The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which happened on July 26, 1990. The ADA prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in several areas, including employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications, and access to state and local government programs and services.

ADA compliance means the appropriate and reasonable accommodations are in place for disabled persons. This includes things like large print, interpreters, wheelchair ramps, and allowing service animals.

Statistically, there are over 54 million Americans with a form of disability. When that number is broken down, that’s about 19 percent, or one in every five, Americans. As the population grows and ages, this number will only increase, making these regulations increasingly more important.

As the Plant Operations Director at Fox Run Senior Living, an ADA-compliant community that serves several individuals with disabilities, I work every day to keep our building accessible and safe.

The ADA resulted in less segregation & feeling of being left out for those with disabilities, which is a boon to their well-being and our society.

Some of the things we do to be compliant with the American with Disabilities Act is make sure our restrooms are accessible. We also have strobe lights and horns for the visually and hearing impaired. Our weekly tasks that take ADA compliance into consideration include always putting wet floor signs out when cleaning floors or doing any housekeeping, as wet floors are especially problematic for those with mobility issues.

Our goal in everything we do is to continue providing the best possible accessibility opportunities to everyone within our community.
