Visitability

Concrete Change is an organization that promote the standard known as visitability.

From the Web site:

Visitability is a movement to change home construction practices so that virtually all new homes, whether or not designated for residents who currently have disabilities, offer a few specific features that make the home easier for people who develop a mobility impairment to live in and visit. Several people have asked for a more detailed definition, noting that the list of required features has not been identical in all Visitability legislation, handouts and other materials, and in some voluntary programs.

While the concept of Visitability is very simple, the definition has several complex layers: spirit, features, scope, and moment in history.
