Maintaining Senior's Independence Through Home Adapations

This self-assessment guide was developed by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.

Designed for seniors, this large-print Guide identifies the types of difficulties seniors can experience in the home and describes adaptations to overcome these difficulties. This Guide helps seniors assess their own unique circumstances including using stairs, moving around the house, doing laundry and answering the door. The Self-Assessment Guide would be of interest not only to seniors but their families and caregivers. (© 1993 CMHC, Revised 2009)

This guide is available in both English and French.
