PRA Seminar Series – Martin Hodges on Modifications to the homes of older people living in mainstream housing

15th May 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Martin Hodges is Health and Housing Research Associate at Care and Repair England, a registered charity which aims to improve housing and related services to enable older people to live independently for as long as they choose.

Modifications to the homes of older people living in mainstream housing: Outcomes for the individual, Health and Care Sectors – The Evidence Dilemma 

Nationally older people report high levels of satisfaction with home modifications provided through the grant funded route. However, demonstrating in a robust way, the full value to the individual receiving the intervention in respect of their personal health and wellbeing and the associated benefits to the health and care sectors remains a challenge for service providers.

The presentation will provide an overview of the routes by which older people receive assistance in modifying their homes in each housing tenure but with particular focus on the owner occupied sector. There will also be mention of the Catch 22 project within Care & Repair England which attempts to facilitate working partnerships between service providers and academics to address the evidence gap in respect of quantifying the efficacy of home modifications and its contribution to the Ageing Well in Place agenda.
