My perspective: Is this my floor?

This is one of the more common questions that people ask me whenever the discussion arises re how do I know when I get to my floor after the elevator has come to a stop.

Over the years I have used several strategies.  When I had vision I used to look for visual landmarks but now that I am almost totally blind I depend more heavily on senses of smell and feel. 

Believe it or not, floors all have some sort of a unique smell to them and mine is no different.  In addition, I am able to use my senses of touch and feel to determine whether or not I am on the right floor.

I use my cane to test the texture of the carpet and this sure helps.  Sure, you may be thinking that these methods are a bit off track, but trust me when I tell you that they work.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.
