Abstract or Summary
  • This study explores the awareness of features in homes that could potentially improve the quality of life for those with arthritis. Little research has been published on the subject of home modifications for arthritis sufferers. For this study, several features for the home were identified as potentially helpful in the lives of those with arthritis. Each one was ranked by survey participants for helpfulness in their own lives. Participants were also asked about their awareness of such features and whether or not they would use them and why. The results suggest that some people who have arthritis are not aware of these features. Most participants (65%) indicate that they found nearly all of the features to be either helpful or very helpful. The results of the study indicate a need to raise awareness of such features because they have the potential to improve the quality of life for those with arthritis.
