There is not enough accessible, affordable housing in Tennessee. In part because of the physical design of most homes, and in part because of the expense of homes that are accessible. With many Tennesseans earning very little income, finances restrict living options further.
As we age and experience disability, many are forced to leave their homes because they have become too restrictive for accommodations or aides such as mobility devices. The sudden onset of a disability can mean a costly home modification is necessary or that the entire family must move.
