As we age, our bodies experience natural changes that can dramatically influence the safety of our own home. Often these changes occur gradually, almost undetectably, until suddenly there is a fall or a deterioration of independence.
This text will tell what changes you can make at home to make it safer for elderly people who experience sensory disabilities that are acquired with age.
This document contains guidance on accessibility in the form of Frequently Asked Questions regarding practical aspects of web content creation.
Each question provides comments and clarifications about typical accessibility issue that webmasters and internet editors face in their daily work.
This publication presents the outcomes of a small qualitative study that took place in the frame of the European Union-funded Home Sweet Home project. It aims at shedding the light to barriers and enablers for the acceptance of new technologies that are introduced to help older persons live autonomously and manage better their health.
The purpose of the Report is the provision of an Information Record of models of specialist accommodation and care for older people, and related standards, in use across the countries of the European Union, the acceding and candidate countries, and the EFTA countries: Norway, Switzerland,
Iceland and Liechtenstein (in total 38 countries).
This (YouTube) video and creative tree give the opportunity to introduce elderly people with sensory disabilities to the wonders of today's assistive technology and show them that Assistive Technology products are user-friendly and multifaceted.
Some of the best known, expert information providers in Europe have joined together to create the biggest, most comprehensive information service on assistive technology (AT) serving older and disabled people, their families and carers across the globe.
On this webpage, you can find all the information you need on the existing assistive devices that can be used by elderly people with sensory disabilities and other people with all kinds of disabilities.
This press release published on the Italian website wwww.nonautosufficienza.it introduces the European Thematic Network on Assistive Information project. The ETNA Network will implement, over a period of 3 years, a European Web Portal providing unified access to all ICT AT resources available on the Web in relation to the needs of all stakeholders, involved as AT users, professionals, developers and policy-makers.

This report would not have been possible without the time and commitment given by older blind and partially sighted people living in Tullamore, Salzburg and Marseille. Participants in the focus groups were able to share their experiences of adapting to poor vision whilst endeavouring to continue accessing the communities in which they lived.
This paper focusses on Universal Design which is a process that seeks to create products and environments that can be used equally effectively by everyone, including people with significant levels of disablement. Creating environments that are more “universal” requires a special understanding of the performance characteristics of those who are potentially marginalized by less inclusive design strategies.
WCAG 2.0 covers a wide range of recommendations for making Web content more accessible. Following these guidelines will make content accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity and combinations of these.
This document shows how Web accessibility depends on several components working together and how improvements in specific components could substantially improve Web accessibility. It also shows how the WAI guidelines address these components.
This web page was developped in the context of the Web Accessibility Initiative by W3C and is intended for people with disabilities who have difficulties accessing the Web. It gives an introduction to Web accessibility.
