Grab Your Wheels is the place to go for tips, accommodation reviews, activities, accessible walks and events. The family of five behind this blog even go to the point of carrying a tape measure to check out the width of doorways, bed heights and gaps under beds to accommodate a mobile hoist. They find that bathrooms are often problematic in guest accommodation because our building codes in New Zealand are very basic. So it’s always a ‘breath of fresh air’ when they find a provider that thinks beyond that standard and considers the accessibility for all their potential guests.
New Zealand is a beautiful country and it’s diverse landscapes, beaches and national parks are a must-see. The Grab Your Wheels team hope, with their blog, they can open up some ideas of places you can explore and enjoy with a few tips along the way from their ‘lived’ experiences! They also hope that those who are not affected by disability will gain some insight into the challenges many families like ours face going about our everyday life.
