Discussion Summary

Explorer Shirley starts the discussion with the opinion that her living community needs additional grab bars near all of the toilets in the ladies' rooms. She did have bars installed in her apartment bath, but finds a lack of them in the public restrooms.

The group discusses other modifications that would make life easier, if conditions permit their installation. Explorer Rita warns the group that even when steps are a navigable height, they can be very slippery when wet.
