Home Adaptations Services – questionnaire for people aged 50 and carers with recent experience of using the service
Elaine Ulett is a researcher at Oxford Brookes University. With colleagues, she is exploring the potential of integrating the fast-track home adaptation services for older people into health and social care services.
Home adaptations are carried out to make the home environment safer for individuals. This could prevent people from needing to move into a care home, and / or could facilitate faster discharge from hospitals. Integrating the services could ensure timely home adaptations through the Government’s fast track home adaptation grants.
