At Home

At Home

Houses are supposed to be the safest and most comfortable place to live. But problems can arise and make them less secure and comfortable. Indoor air pollution, exposure to toxic substances (i.e. heavy metals, solvents) noise and other physical, chemical and biological dangers are factors that can affect physical, mental and social health. Another factor is accessibility - it is important to enable older and disabled people to live independently.
