Summary: The objective of this research was to investigate whether home accommodations influence the amount of human help provided to a nationally representative sample of adults who use wheelchairs. Data from the Adult Disability Follow-back Survey (DFS), Phase II, of the Disability Supplement to the 19941995 National Health Interview Surveys (NHIS-D) was analyzed. The analytic sample consisted of 899 adults aged 18 and older who reported using wheelchairs in the previous 2 weeks. Results: Home accommodations were related to the receipt of unpaid, but not paid, help. Relative to having no home accommodations, the presence of each additional accommodation decreased the odds of having unpaid help by 14% (OR =.86; 95% CI =.76,.97). Additionally, an inverse relationship between the number of accommodations in the home and hours of unpaid help was observed (p <.01). For wheelchair users who live alone, specific types of home accommodations were also inversely related to hours of unpaid help.
