Abstract
Background People applying for a housing adaptation (HA) grant are at great risk of participation restrictions due to declining capacity and environmental barriers. Aim To investigate the association of person-, environment-, and activity-related factors with participation frequency and satisfaction among people applying for a housing adaptation grant. Material and methods Baseline cross-sectional data were collected during home visits (n = 128). The association between person-, environment-, and activity-related factors and participation frequency and satisfaction was analysed using logistic regressions. Results The main result is that frequency of participation outside the home is strongly associated with dependence in activities of... (More)
Background People applying for a housing adaptation (HA) grant are at great risk of participation restrictions due to declining capacity and environmental barriers. Aim To investigate the association of person-, environment-, and activity-related factors with participation frequency and satisfaction among people applying for a housing adaptation grant. Material and methods Baseline cross-sectional data were collected during home visits (n = 128). The association between person-, environment-, and activity-related factors and participation frequency and satisfaction was analysed using logistic regressions. Results The main result is that frequency of participation outside the home is strongly associated with dependence in activities of daily living (ADL) and cognitive impairments, while satisfaction with participation outside the home is strongly associated with self-reported health. Moreover, aspects of usability in the home were associated with frequency of participation outside the home and satisfaction with participation in the home and outside the home alone. Conclusion Dependence in ADL, cognitive impairments, self-rated health, and aspects of usability are important factors contributing to participation frequency and satisfaction among people applying for a housing adaptation grant, particularly outside the home. Significance Our findings indicate that more attention should be directed towards activity-related factors to facilitate participation among HA applicants, inside and outside the home. (Less)
