Publication date: 2019
Ranking: useful
Good read for who? Occupational Therapists, housing staff and repair agencies.

In their words:

“The primary purpose of this guide is to address delays in the delivery of all types of
adaptations (minor and major) across all tenures that occur when people receive a
disproportionate response to their need for an adaptation.download link

The core principles underlying this guide are that the person is central to the process
and that the preventative benefits of adaptations are maximised. The aim is to enable all
services concerned with adaptations to provide a more proportionate and timely
response, reducing delays in installation of adaptations and alleviating the likelihood of
an unplanned hospital admission or an unwanted move to residential or nursing care.”
