Room to improve: the role of home adaptations in improving later life

This report from the Centre for Ageing Better finds that making small changes to older people’s homes, such as installing handrails, ramps and level-access showers, alongside carrying out simple home repairs, could play a significant role in relieving pressure on the NHS and social care and reduce costs by millions of pounds each year.

It also shows that minor home aids and adaptations can greatly improve quality of life for people who are losing mobility.
