New Guidance – Home Adaptations for Older People
COVID-19 has shown there is an even more urgent need for timely and effective home adaptations for older and disabled people as they can increase safety, wellbeing and independence during and beyond the pandemic.
This recently updated Guidance from the Local Government Association (LGA) was produced in partnership with the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), Care & Repair England and Age UK.
‘Meeting the home adaptation needs of older people’ is useful for councillors, health and wellbeing board members as well as officers and other stakeholders. It highlights important aspects of home adaptations and provides links to examples of local innovation and good practice.
The LGA is calling on government to ensure that councils and local partners have the necessary funding to enable them to deliver this crucial housing help for older and disabled people at this critical time.
