Seniors need a lot more light to see well than younger people, but they're more prone to experiencing bright lights as glaring, according to an article on the McKnight's website.
Glare can be mitigated with lighting and interior design choices that take seniors into account.

• Providing high levels of light within each spacing fixture to ensure that light is uniform throughout
• Providing a “transition zone” with medium-bright lighting in areas where residents must pass from a brightly lit space to a more dimly lit space
