2010 Livable Communities Awards - Lakeland, Florida

Dennis and Juliette Mason live in a gated community in Florida. Dennis lost both legs in the Vietnam War, but his natural athleticism allowed him to navigate the house for many years with relative ease. To reduce challenges as they age, the couple decided to remodel the master bathroom to make it fully accessible. — Text by Michael Chotiner; Photographs by Chris Usher
