Adapting for Ageing: Good practice and innovation in home adaptations

Adapting for Ageing

‘Adapting for Ageing’, published by the Centre for Ageing Better and Care & Repair England, identifies examples of good practice from across England on providing life-changing adaptations in the home to enable people to carry out every day activities such as cooking, bathing or using the toilet.

The report reveals innovative approaches and calls for other councils and service providers to learn from the good practice it has uncovered. These include proactively raising awareness of available support and how to access it, delivering home adaptations quickly and without means-testing, linking adaptation services with vital home improvements and working with handyperson services.
