Visitable homes have three basic accessibility features:

  1. No step entrance – At minimum, there must be one accessible, no-step, level entrance at the front, back or side of the house with an accessible route to the driveway.
  2. Clear passageways – All doorways and halls must be wider (i.e., minimum of 38 inches) so there is clear passage throughout the main floor.
  3. Accessible bathroom – The bathroom on the main floor must be accessible by visitors who use mobility devices.

Visitable housing offers a convenient, age-friendly home for residents and a welcoming environment for visitors of all ages and abilities. Visitable housing benefits everyone – seniors, persons with a disability, parents, children and families.
