Abstract

Date Presented 4/16/2015

Deficits in self-care have been linked to older adults’ ability to remain at home; little research has focused on toileting. In this qualitative study, we used interviews to explore attitudes, experiences, practices, and preferences associated with toileting by older women. Results will inform the development of client-centered interventions to maximize performance and to support aging in place.
