Abstract: A new study is investigating the life-long and contemporary experiences of kitchens of 48 people over 60 years of age. The research includes detailed questionnaire interviews asking people about their experiences of living in their current kitchen. This paper presents the initial quantitative results of peoples’ experiences, needs and wants from their current kitchens. This includes problems experienced with activities of daily life in the current kitchen, changes that have been made or are planned to be made to the current kitchen to increase usability in older age, coping strategies and examples of design that have been found to be really useful to older people.
Description: This conference paper was presented at the International Conference on Contemporary Ergonomics and Human Factors, Stoke Rochford, UK, 12th-14th April 2011. The conference proceedings are available at: http://www.taylorandfrancis.com/
