Aging, Disability and Independence
Selected papers from the 4th International Conference on Aging, Disability and Independence
This book includes 15 full-length papers submitted for the Fourth International Conference on Aging, Disability and Independence (ICADI). These papers reflect five ICADI tracks: Livable Homes and Communities, Smart Homes and Robotics, Transportation, Work, Assistive Technology and one ICADI theme: Consumer Perspective. The major focus of this publication is on aging and disability-related services, research development and policy, bringing together a rich mix of motivated and talented individuals (multi-disciplinary and engaged in different sectors and types of organizations) who ultimately impact these services. Further, the aim is to provide the opportunity to learn more about the successes, challenges and different approaches to the independence-related needs of elders in different countries. This book is of interest to research and development personnel, practitioners/service providers, policymakers, business representatives, consumers, professional and graduate students.
