Here, we will offer some advice and give some ideas that may help small towns to help folks with mobility difficulties to get about easily and safely. These are simple, basic ideas that can make life easier for many people.
In public buildings and in buildings that offer services to citizens, free, unobstructed access should be provided. Such buildings include:
- Bus, train and metro stations.
- Community health centres
- City Halls and Public Administrations
- Employment Offices
- Post offices
- Police and Civil Guard stations and barracks
- Shopping centres in general
- Public Schools
The public buildings listed above often have their activities distributed on more than one floor, and accessed by stairs.
These buildings should provide passenger lifts, or stairlifts when it is not feasible to install a lift, in order to facilitate access for people with mobility difficulties.
As regards public streets and pedestrian areas, it would be advisable to lower kerbs and keep these areas as clean and free of broken pavement and holes as possible.
Finally, although a number of other measures are surely needed, city and town halls should allocate funds to help people with difficulties in mobility, so that disabled, elderly or sick people can adapt their homes to meet their needs.
It is undeniable that these are complicated times for our country, but the well-being of each and every person should be a top priority. There are many folks who, because they are not informed, are ill or are having economic difficulties, are unaware of the many ways in which it is possible to improve mobility and make their lives more enjoyable.
