The brochure provides suggestions for adapting or building approaches and entrances to the home to provide full accessibility to persons with mobility limitations due to disability or age. Briefly described are modifications for ramps, landings at the top and bottom of a ramp, and door openers and locks. This publication lists 13 sources for wheelchair and stair lifting devices, six sources of special elevating devices, 20 sources of ramps, 12 sources of ramps and lifts, two special option devices, and nine sources of power door openers and locks. Drawings illustrate many modifications, a table presents figures for determining a ramp's rise, and a chart can be used to check slopes of existing walks and ramps. (DB)
