A new website is working in partnership with major residential developers, real estate agents and qualified occupational therapists to showcase some of the finest homes in Sydney that are either accessible for people with mobility impairments or that, at minimal cost & inconvenience, can be easily adapted to become so when the need arises in the future.

The site highlights some of the more high-profile luxury apartments in detail, but will happily take enquiries for suburbs across the Greater Sydney Metropolitan area.
