Breaking barriers: Developers now wooing senior citizens, special-needs residents

For wheelchair-ridden Manoj Degamwar, 69, a retired banker and Khar resident, basic tasks such as turning off the lights and going to the bathroom are rendered difficult. Degamwar fractured his feet in an accident two years ago.
“The doorway to the bathroom is very narrow, and the wheelchair can’t slide in there,” he says. “Also, the switchboards are placed at a height from the ground making it difficult for me to reach them.”
