The wonderful weather we are having this Fall is delightful and rare. However, even with the warm temperatures and sunny days, the Disabilities and Human Rights Group of the Social Development Centre reminds everyone that fall is the time of year to pay particular attention to sidewalk safety.
Sidewalks can be dangerous places for those who experience any degree or type of mobility challenge, be it balance or strength, using a walker or other mobility device or having a sensory limitation such as a visual impairment. A safety assessment checklist was created last year has been updated this November. Share with your neighbours, friends and family.
