Abstract

Housing environments have crucial impacts on safe and independent living of all people but especially for older persons, people with disabilities and their carers. This publication aims to assist the decision-making processes with regard to modifying an existing home or relocating to a home with more accessible features. It is hoped that by using the checklist, older people or those with disabilities are empowered to make more informed choices about their housing needs.
