This information sheet presents some of the interim findings of the life opportunities survey regarding the accessibility of different rooms within an adult's own home. The survey found that adults with impairments were more likely than adults without impairments to have greater difficulty accessing the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Among adults with impairments who experienced difficulty accessing rooms within their own home, the most common barrier was stairs and lack of ramps. One in twenty adults with impairments also identified lack of help or assistance as a barrier.
