Home adaptation: helping older people age in place



Home adaptation: helping older people age in place



Geriatric Nursing 22(5): 239

The purposes of this article are to discuss common problems faced by many elders who want to remain at home, present information about possible solutions that increase their safety and comfort, and provide resources for additional information on assistive products.
