    Abstract

    Younger adults considering home dialysis need support to ensure home circumstances are suitable and affordable. Home circumstances relate closely to the financial burden reported by younger home dialysis users. Attention to home circumstances of younger patients with chronic kidney disease by policymakers, funders, and healthcare practitioners is needed.
