The role of adaptations in improving later life.

Publication date: 2017
Ranking: useful

In their words:
“Very little attractive, affordable housing has been built in the right locations to enable people to move to properties that are more accessible.
Adapting the home can increase the usability of the home environment and enable the majority
of people to maintain their independence for as long as possible. This could potentially reduce the risk of falls and other accidents, relieve pressures on accident and emergency services, speed hospital discharge and reduce the need for residential care.
The review aims to provide evidence to make the case for the importance and effectiveness of adaptations, primarily to influence policy-makers at national and local levels, practitioners and local commissioners.”
