I have been disabled as a result of childhood Polio.
I have noticed when visiting eating places in Harford County. that approxamtely 95% of them do not have accommodations for the elderly and the disabled. And by that I mean the chairs that are furnished do not have arms on them. Sometimes this type of chair is called a “Captians Chair”
The Captians Chairs make it easier for the disabled and the elderly tro raise themselves to a standing position because they can now push themselves up easily with the help of the arms.
Several years ago I approached many restaurants in Harford County asking that they furnish this type of chair.
Without a second thought the restaurants that agreed and have furnishd this type of chairs are:
Bone Fish Grill, Red Lobster, Panera Bread, Bob Evans and the most recenty one being The Open Door Cafe.
You would be surprised in those restaurants that turned down my request.
You have to walk in the shoes of the disabled or the elderly to see what I mean.
This is how I see things.
