I need some help. I haven't had any luck with realtors, web sites or the V.A. I am trying to find some place, that is accessible for wheelchairs. Hopefully with a rolling shower. That would be from two weeks or two months. Depending on how good things go.

After three years getting use to being in a wheel chair, and the wonderful winter we just had. I want to try making a trip to Florida. Around Tampa/Fort Lauderdale on the gulf side.

Problem that I am running into is finding a place that is easy for me to get around in/out of. There are handicap rooms, but nothing that I can find for wheelchairs. I know better that there has to be places, but they must be keeping them a secret.

I am hoping that one of the members in Florida knows of a place or two. And I would really appreciate it if someone can tell me of it.

Thanks again.

Mike

I'll look around a bit and see what If I can find anything or any info for you , Mike . I know sometimes "wheelchair access " doesn't mean much , my wife was in a wheelchair before she passed away and it was often frustrating helping her get around

to start you might want to give these people a call.

Thanks skip for the reply.

We are checking out the websites to see where they lead to.

Is there any florida people on this site that may suggest some places.

Thanks

I'm from Florida, but afraid I can't help you much with this question.

Skip probably has the best suggestions for you. If you're interested in renting something "By Owner" you may check this out: https://www.vrbo.com/vacation-rentals/usa/florida?suitability=handicap+accessible

We've vacationed in several different places using VRBO and have never had a problem. I've never had to be concerned about wheelchair access, but you can usually see pictures of the place you'll be staying.

Best of luck!

I can't say anything about Florida and the St.Pete/Tampa area---but I would think that they would have RV parks with Park Model trailers or mobile homes that have ramps and wide doors. They might have cut down stoves and cabinets too.

We live in an ADA compliant home--cement ramp to the front door, and every door and walk-through is at least 36" wide. We winter in an RV Park in Mission, TX--and they have ADA compliant Park Models there. Ours is not, be we are going to eventually put in a wider sliding door and in January we built a deck that does not have a ramp but the stairs are wide and have very low risers. We can't get around too good, but are not in wheel chairs---but my wife uses a walker quite often.

I would do some searches in the area that you are interested in and then give a call to those parks that you seem to like. That's what we did a few years ago. There should be quite a few parks that are 55 yrs or older--like our is in Texas. Good luck.
