Why ADA Signs are Necessary in Nursing Homes

By |

ADA compliant signs are necessary in all public facilities, but they are especially important in areas where there tends to be a large congregation of people with disabilities. One such location is a nursing home, where there are many elderly people living with disabilities relating to sight, mobility, hearing and more. ADA compliance in nursing homes is both a logistical and legal necessity. One major challenge people who are having have is reading signs from a distance. The ADA outlines specific standards for various elements of ADA signs to make them specifically readable for even visually impaired people.
