How to make outdoor patios more accessible

This article may be a tad late for this summer but never the less; I hope that my tips can help you for future days.

When it comes to making an outdoor patio accessible the objective here would be to ensure that some sort of orderly arrangement can be affected. That is:

  1. To ensure that tables are arranged in an orderly fashion.
  2. That there are not too many chairs to a table.
  3. That there is enough space between tables to at least accommodate walkers and wheelchairs.
  4. That there are not too many objects placed on the table; meaning that you would probably be best not to have anything on your tables before your customers take their seats.
  5. Be sure to provide your staff with the appropriate training with regard to communicating and interacting with diners with special needs.
  6. Your staff would need to be aware that there are many persons with a disability who would often require that the menu be read to them and that they are familiarized with the arrangement of the food on their plates.
  7. Staff should also be made aware that diners with a disability may from time to time ask for assistance to the washrooms.

This is a good start and I hope you find it helpful.

Good luck!
