How is it…

That the Supercuts where I went today is completely wheelchair accessible (including the shampoo/perm/dryer alcove) and the dentist office I visited is not?

I’ve heard of a lot of nightmare experiences with Supercuts via Facebook, but mine is great with skilled folks and an amazing franchise managers.

(for anyone local in Denver it’s the one on Colorado Blvd.)

And then there’s mental health

July 25, 2009 at 5:21 PM (Uncategorized) (, , )

I’ve found a completely accessible shrink’s office which is good. but a therapist? My past therapists rooms are inaccessible via wheelchair or scooter, though the building itself is. One therapist canceled me outright when she discovered (by checking after she’d been there three years,) and found there were stairs on both sides of the entrances to her building.

I have a third, which may work out…who does not take Medicare.

Do people never think that some of their patients might need fully accessible offices to access their services? I also have a partial problem with my Primary Care Physician’s offices….It just seems so illogical.

Accessibility Antics Day

…so I get to The Expensive Shrink’s office….

And the elevator doesn’t work, so the only *choice* was for the therapist/med nurse to come downstairs, and *speak with me in an open lobby.* whith persons walking by and unable to avoid hearing our discussion.

Then, the elevator worked long enough to get me upstairs…

And conked out when I was through…causing the expensive shrink to have to call the elevator people again that eventually got it working enough to get me back to the lobby.

I’ll say it slowly.

People who go into buildings with doctors offices in them are, generally, dealing with impairment or illness.

Impaired or ill persons may have difficulty walking up or down *stairs*, and thus be barred from treatments that could improve or maintain their quality of life.
