Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Participation in the study was voluntary. After a client had contacted an occupational therapist describing problems indicating the need for a HA, the occupational therapist in the intervention as well as in the control groups informed the client about the study and asked whether he or she was interested to participate. Clients who expressed interest received written information about the study and provided written informed consent. If the person was cohabiting, the partner received the same information. Declined participation in the study did not affect further services. As some clients were fragile the data collection through home visits was performed by trained occupational therapists. The study was approved by the Regional Ethical Review Board in Lund (2012/566).
: All study participants gave their written informed consent to participate in the study and to have the data published.
: The authors declare that they have no competing interests.
