Abstract

Date Presented 4/7/2016

We aimed to determine the effectiveness of home modifications in reducing falls and maintaining independence in ADLs for older adults. Those who received treatment experienced a decrease in falls at 6 months and an improvement in daily activity performance that was maintained at 12 months.
