Re: Handicapped Access to Salon?

At times I am called on from workers comp court established funds to make adaptions for work place injuries. The goal is to change the built environment to permit independent freedom of movement. If upper body strength is available or can be built with therapy then work with an occupational therapist to locate hand holds and resting areas on the companion way steps. Maybe increase the slope of the steps to provide the option to sit on a step to rest before the next push to the top.
