    do apartments with roll-in showers exist?

    my girlfriend and i are in florida and over the past couple of days must have called and looked at over 50 apartments, no sign of a roll-in. has anyone come across one...anywhere. forget florida...i'd be happy if someone could tell me they've seen one anywhere in the united states.

    I went 2 years getting bed baths because I lived in apartments without showers. Hell, the doorway was too narrow for you in my chair to get back in there so I was never even in those bathrooms. Good luck finding one

    Make the best out of today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Nobody knows that better than those of us that have almost died from spinal cord injury.

    They exist, but they are as rare as hen's teeth. Just try to find a bathroom where you can get through the door at all, and look into a slider tub chair/commode combination if possible as this is nearly as convenient as a roll-in.

    I had one during my undergrad days, but only b/c I approached the apartment complex management w/ a special request during the building phase. I think they converted it back to a normal tub after I left.

    Under the ADA you can put one in (or make other mods you need) but you have to pay for it, and the property owners can demand that you put it back to "normal" when you move. But if you can find a tenant who needs one to move in as you move out, you might get away without having to restore it.

    I'm preparing to move out on my own. How sure are you that under the ADA they have to let you convert it.....of course agreeing to put it back and pay for it.

    That would be awesome

    It's not an ADA issue. It falls under the Fair Housing Act:
