An inclusive world would be ideal. Unfortunately whether it is at home, at work, or at play, individuals with challenges and disabilities are often unnecessarily excluded.
There is misconception that accessible environments are unappealing, unattractive, and more costly to achieve and maintain.
There is also a misconception that creating accessible spaces accommodates a minority in our society.

Not sure how to comply with current accessibility guidelines/standards for your business?
Did you know that business’s that are not accessible potentially miss out on 75% of business. This is due to the fact that not only does the person with the disability not give you business, it's most likely their family and friends will not give you business as well.

Thousands of patients are discharged from Canadian acute-care hospitals every day. Some are transferred to other facilities for further care, others happily go home to continue with their recovery and a portion go home with great trepidation not knowing what to expect.
Often people feel that the best place for their recovery and rehabilitation is in the hospital, where the equipment and help is always available. In fact, it is possible to have all you need to be safe and comfortable in your own home.
It is possible for patients who can have care at home to recover as quickly as they do in a hospital setting.
A home that accommodates the needs of the patient is an integral part of the rehabilitation and recovery at home process.
Let the great team at TAC show you all the possibilities and make life easy transitioning yourself back at home.
It goes without saying that at a Hotel, the goal is to take care of the customer and treat them like royalty so it creates an experience that they will remember in hopes that they will come back for more stays.
Accommodating the accessibility population will be crucial to those Hotels that would like to be comforting and welcoming to all.
All hotels should have “Accessible Suites,” that truly are multi functionally designed so that everybody can use it. Keeping in mind that people predominately staying in accessible suite will be using assistive devices. Narrow Doorways, small turning radiuses, standard bathtubs, etc, are definitely NOT accessible.
Let Total Access Centre create a design that truly works for the customer that will be staying overnight. There are many stylish and functional products are the market that TAC has access to.
Call us today at 416-546-1000 to bring your Hotel up to accessibility code and have all customers coming back for more.
Remember, un- accessible not only loses business directly with the client, but it also loses business for family members as well.
