Thread: Best state/county to live via wheelchair?

  1. #1

    Best state/county to live via wheelchair?

    I saw that ADAPT came out with worst
    ten states as it pertains to community
    service.

    New Jersey was listed but it
    does have the hireability waiver
    where a person can work and make
    up to 45k, own 20k in liquid assets,
    and still receive full medicaid benefits.
    With this incentive, I can live a life not to far from pre-injury comforts, especially if I am self-employed.

    What are the comparisons we're dealing with
    and what are the criteria dealing for best/worst
    state? I looked but could not find the ten best states.

    Thanks for any info.

    Joe,
    List what your priorities are. What are those factors that are important to YOU as a person who uses a wheelchair?
    ie:
    Accessibility? - Such as in which areas? more specific: Transportation (public/private), overall city planning?
    Healthcare? Employment? Weather? Single girls? - more specific: Hot single girls?

    If there is no Top 10 List for W/C users/disabled, then Identify what YOU are looking for and maybe you can better narrow it down.

    btw, there are general top/best places to live lists, but don't recall if disability is included.

    How could one compare states
    if they don't refer to the Medicaid waiver as
    "Hireability?"

    Hmmm maybe ratio women to men...but doubt if I can find "Hot Women Poll"

    Also I thought Fla was more progressive
    because they have a large DA community in several areas....

    Decaf, do you mean full mediCare benefits, or medicaid as you stated.

    I've never heard of a program like the one you mention, sounds awesome.

    As to the best place to live with while using a wheelchair, I'd say california for the state, and berkely, ca., for the city.
