There were quite a few links to videos on this website that give some nice ideas about making a home adaptable/accessible in generally an aesthetically pleasing way. Most designs were focused on physical disabilities (at least on the handful of links I clicked on). Overall, a nice resource.

This is a good starting point for people who are beginning efforts to make their home more accessible. Information is provided in common language, however, the information is not exhaustive.

For someone who isn't extremely handy, this was a good, detailed set of resources for taking on some projects around the home, and making your home more accessible.

This is a good idea for those who are new to the accessibility options in a home. It is great that a household name such as Bob Vila from This Old House created lots of "how-to" videos, because it might reach the general public with more open arms.

My favorite aspect of this site was the room-by-room checklist of steps to make your home more accessible.

Many homes, especially older homes, need to be retrofitted so it was great that there was a section on this.
