The struggle for independence

  • Marion Bieber


This is a personal account of the struggle for independence of an octogenarian and the impact of appropriate and inappropriate design on her daily life. Independence in the home, in public places, in travel and leisure activities are all strongly influenced by design which does or does not take account of the issues discussed in chapter 1 by Felicia Huppert. This chapter illustrates some of these issues as experienced by its author.
