Are The Apartments in Bengaluru Disabled Friendly? A New Villa Community for Autism patients and Senior Citizens

Posted by Sasi Kumar on December 5, 2022

Apartments in Bengaluru Disabled Friendly

The two most crucial considerations when buying a house are making sure everyone is safe and paying attention to the fundamental needs of the occupants. You must choose a home with features that are accessible to people with disabilities if you have a member of your family who has special needs. Most of the apartment projects come up with handicap friendly designs. But still, there is a lot of work to be done in this area. Often these public and private buildings today lack the most basic amenities for elderly and disabled people. Most new construction projects have elevators to help those who use wheelchairs or caliper brakes move around more easily. However, many other essential amenities are lacking, including side rails, ramps, tactile paving, engraved or braille signage, and others.

By including some of the amenities, if not all of these amenities, developers are gradually releasing a need to make their projects more senior and handicapped-friendly. As the demand for such residences is reportedly rising amid pandemic-induced complexities, Covid-19 has also somewhat changed the future of the senior living sector in India.

Accessibility in a home is typically achieved through architectural intervention. However, some accessibility features, such as adapted furniture, shelves, cabinets, or even electronic devices in the home, can make life easier for those who are disabled.

Below are some of the basic characteristics of buying a house that is accessible to the disabled.

Because wheelchairs are wide, entrances and hallways will be wider to accommodate them and to make it easier for wheelchair users to turn around.

These apartments should have vinyl or thin flat carpeting, which makes it easier for people in wheelchairs to move around.

A wheelchair can fit under the sink in a fully accessible unit because the plumbing has been set up to allow for this.

The height of the cabinets in fully handicapped-accessible units will be lower than in regular units. To create room for trying to roll the pushchair right up to the countertops, there are probably going to be fewer cabinets at floor level.

All the knobs on handicap-accessible appliances, like the stove, will be on the front rather than along the back panel, making them simpler and safer to operate.

There will be grab bars and roll-in showers in the bathrooms. Some come with benches, but if not, mobile ones are inexpensively available. The toilets are higher and equipped with grab bars.

Light switches are lowered so that a wheelchair can reach them. Additionally, power outlets will be adjusted at various heights, occasionally higher and occasionally lower.

A ramp should lead up to the apartment door if it is elevated and the door itself should be large enough to accommodate a wheelchair. To avoid a bumpy passage through the door, the threshold must be clean with the floor.

Parking spaces that are designated for people with disabilities or wheelchairs are marked and designated as such. There will typically be a clear, flat pathway from the door to the parking space, and they will be right next to or very close to the unit. Inquire with the management if you need this kind of parking.

Renters in wheelchairs can access the common areas of newer apartment buildings with handicap-accessible units. The light switches are lower, and the hallways in the common areas are very wide. Elevators are available where needed to access common areas, and there are ramps for sidewalk access.

This was about the disabled friendly apartment complexes.

The Together Community

Nowadays most apartment and villa projects are coming up with the Autism friendly projects. One such project is The Together Community in Devanahalli Bengaluru, together with Vedaanta senior living.

The Together Community (TTC) is a mixed-ability neighborhood where adults with autism can learn to live independently close to their parents and stay in the neighborhood well after their parents have passed away.

The goal of TTC is to create a community that supports adults with autism and their families in maintaining their independence and enjoying life.

Chakrapani and Sangeetha, who are the parents of two adults with autism, co-founded Together Community. The trustees include medical and allied professionals who work in the field of disabilities. Chakrapani has worked in the financial industry for more than three decades. Since 2015, Sangeetha has served as the director of the Together Foundation. She has a background in advertising and promotion. Sangeetha develops interactive stories for autistic people as well as teaching programmes for ADL and vocational skills.

The Together community is situated in Bangalore near Nandi Hills. Within the 45-acre gated community of independent villas known as “Landmark Estia,” the community will span 7 acres. Hills encircle the land on all sides, offering stunning and peaceful views. The Bangalore International Airport is 45 minutes away, there are beautiful views and a pleasant climate, and there are quality medical facilities within 5 km.

The Together community provides a kitchen, dining facilities, meditation room, medical facilities and recreational room for disabled people.


We wish that more such disabled, autism and senior citizens projects should come up in Bangalore. A stressful task can be finding an apartment that is handicap accessible. The ideal apartment that is handicap accessible can be found though, with the right amount of search.
