Our team published recently an article in the journal PLoS One, entitled Opens external link in new windowChoosing between staying at home or moving: A systematic review of factors influencing housing decisions among frail older adults.

Most older adults wish to stay at home during their late life years, but physical disabilities and cognitive impairment may force them to face a housing decision. However, they lack relevant information to make informed value-based housing decisions. Consequently, we sought to identify the sets of factors influencing the housing decision-making of older adults. We performed a systematic literature search for studies evaluating any factors influencing the housing decisions among older adults over 65 years old without cognitive disabilities.
