Innovation from Older People to overcome difficulties at home

Staying independent with activities of daily living is one of the key contributors to quality of life as one grows older.

There are a number of companies that provide specialist assistive devices to support independence when difficulties are experienced.  These devices are an invaluable part of supporting people to maintain independence but unfortunately, not all are able to afford them.

I came across an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal on how older Americans are overcoming some of these difficulties experienced at home through innovative ‘hacks’.
