I’ve been thinking about buying some first-floor condos and renovating them to be wheelchair accessible rentals in my city for a while now. Unfortunately, I don’t have that kind of money yet, but I will eventually, and I’ve been wanting to give something to the disabled community here on Vancouver Island. The problem of not enough accessible housing is real and ripe for the plucking for the right developer. Every month, people are released from the stroke recovery floor of the hospital, and many of them have no accessible place to go,which they will need for at least a shorter stay. It’s just good sense to make sure that they have an accessible apartment they can use as a stop gap until they are able to renovate their own homes or until they have been able to fully recover from their stroke. It would be easy to build a relationship with the hospitals stroke recovery unit and benefits both the patients and the rentals and the city.

This is certainly needed in the USA as well.
Mexico too, they’ve taken to the streets.
