Abstract: This research focalizes on the experience of ten young adults aged 18 to 32 years who had an injury to the spinal cord and examines the evolution of what home means for them and of their perception of their residence as being their home. Based on semi-directed interviews conducted at the residence of ten participants, it aims at identifying the dimensions of the meaning of home that are experienced as being most critical for such individuals and at relating these dimensions to residential adaptations and other pertinent factors. For the target group, the research demonstrates the intimate and individualized relationships between the experience of home, the personal characteristics, the social environment, the external factors and the physical environment, in a past-present-future time continuum. Both the residence and the proximity network have to be adapted in terms of accessibility, usability and personalization taking into account these interrelationships.
