Research topic

Improvement of a decision aid for elderly people aged of 65 years and older with severe loss of autonomy who are faced with the decision to either move from their current home or stay put. This tool will incorporate a variety of additional factors (such as architectural and urban characteristics, social and economic context, the elderly person's values and attachment to their home) into a tool already created by the Chair that mostly considers the health-related aspects of the decision. This new, more complete decision aid will improve the decision process by involving the elderly person in the decision process. The enrichment of the decision aid is part of a shared decision making approach involving both home care teams, caregivers and elderly people in the decision about moving.
