Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

Deficits in ADL have been linked to the older adults’ ability to remain at home; little research has focused on the environmental modifications, equipment, and other strategies needed. This study used a technology survey and interviews to explore the ADL strategies used by community-dwelling older adults and their perspectives on factors impacting their ability to stay at home. Results will inform the development of effective ADL interventions using technology and environmental supports.
