Accessibility

General

We strive to ensure that its services are accessible to people with disabilities. We have invested a significant amount of resources to help ensure that its website is made easier to use and more accessible for people with disabilities, with the strong belief that every person has the right to live with dignity, equality, comfort and independence.

Accessibility on our website

Here is a list of actions we’ve taken to make our site more accessible and in compliance with the (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) WCAG 2.0 standard.

UserWay Website Accessibility Widget

The software allows us to increase compliance with WCAG 2.0, ATAG 2.0, ADA, & Section 508 requirements.

The UserWay menu is available on every page and can be enabled by clicking the accessibility menu icon that appears in the middle left side of the page. After triggering the accessibility menu, please wait a moment for the accessibility menu to load in its entirety.

We have updated our sites colors and removed or enhanced background images in places to meet the WCAG 2.0 color ratio standards of 4:5:1

Disclaimer

We will continue our efforts to continually improve the accessibility of our site and services in the belief that it is our collective moral obligation to allow seamless, accessible and unhindered use also for those of us with disabilities.

Despite our efforts to make all pages and content on our website accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be the result of not having an accessible solution or technology available, an editing error, software updates that are outside of our purview, integrated 3rd party tools (e.g. Google Maps) or an oversight.

If you are experiencing difficulty with our website’s accessibility features, please contact us. We will be happy to assist you.
