Supporting Roy's interests: an unconventional journey from the house to the workshop assisted by personalized fall prevention modifications

26 Mar 2018
Description

The relationships between older adults and their home environments are commonly built upon several decades of personal-expression, values and goals. However, fall preventative home modifications often create a dissonance between existing environments and efforts to prevent falls at home. Within this visual essay, a snapshot of one 88-year-old man's life is presented – Roy's daily routine is offered as an example of the inter-relationships between one's own home, personal goals and daily activities. Furthermore, Roy's story provides a poignant example of how clinically co-created individualized solutions as well as ‘homemade’ approaches to environmental changes can provide a more uplifting home modifications experience for older adults.
