This project will comprehensively assess the health and social needs of older people who are supported at home with community-based care.

We will also assess possible interplay with other factors such as:

  • Living situation
  • Reduced cognition
  • Risk of falls
  • Reduced mobility
  • Pain
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Continence
  • Fatigue
  • Limitations in daily living activities
