Abstract

Because of the large number of older consumers, it is important to understand why and how older adults misuse common household products, as the incorrect usage can result in serious injury or bodily harm. The study describes the unique data collected from a sample of 79 older adults via a product usage questionnaire. The findings suggest a large percentage of older adults have difficulty, of one type or another, with many different household products.
