A Disabling Environment
When an individual cannot be in control of their life because of physical or social barriers, this can cause a 'disabling environment' An 'enabling environment', however, could help a person to be more in control of their life and allow them to maintain more of their independence, beliefs, preferences privacy and dignity. As suggested in unit 6, "The environment can become a barrier to everyday living" (unit 6, p.16).
For many people, British traditional phrases such as "Home is where the heart is" (unit 6, p.10) or "There's no place like home" bear a relevant significance to the way people live or want to live their lives, in the privacy of their own home, where most care often takes place. With reference to The Matrix group study (1984), Offprints 9, although the changes in housing design have been made to include better sanitation and use of space and privacy, "housing often presents physical barriers for disabled people" (unit 6, p.26) Although adaptions can sometimes be made, this is not always possible and can mean that people who need care may have to rely on others, thus losing their independence.
