Direct Access has just started an access auditing contract to provide access audits for care homes and day centres for a north west based local authority.
Our access auditors will be auditing the approach routes, car parks, entrances, receptions as well as residential areas. Many sites will be catering for people with learning and developmental disabilities as well as people with Dementia.
A large factor of the project will also be looking at sensory gardens for people with impaired vision and the existing signage in place. We have already inspected a couple of the sites and have below included pictures of some signage that is suitable for people with Dementia.
