Hello everyone!

Each month I will be responding to a question chosen from a pool of some of the most commonly asked ones that I have been asked over the years and continue to be asked.

This month, I’d like to answer the following question:

Accessible Social Activities for the Spring

Before you say no or turn thumbs down on these suggestions, consider these thoughts.
You can definitely increase your revenue and reduce both your internal and external costs and here’s how.

Take it from me! I have been an accessibility awareness consultant and advisor since 1998 and I continue to help companies to increase their revenues, reduce their costs, and reach hidden consumer markets!

Now as a sight loss coach I am helping consumers with sight loss to become more aware of their environment and their requirements, and this is helping companies to have a better understanding of how they need to plan and execute their initiatives.

With spring as our present season, we now need to find ways to create and develop some accessible social events. Many folks especial seniors and those with a disability are simply itching to start socializing after a long hard winter.

Here are some tricks to get you started. Concentrate on types of outdoor activities:

  • Leisurely walks where you provide guides to assist those who have difficulty walking.
  • Choose locations that are easy to access by public transport.
  • Provide assistance for those who need to get to the chosen area for your walk.
  • Make your walk not to be too long.
  • Choose a suitable day and time.
  • You may want to think of providing some light refreshments for the walkers.

This is probably one of the most popular activities for springtime. Give this a try
