Centre for Ageing Better: Further reading

The Centre for Ageing Better has published a guest blog by Jacquel Runnalls - Specialist Housing Occupational Therapist & Inclusive Environments Specialist with Wandsworth Council's Regeneration team.

She highlights the need to design accessible, adaptable and inclusive homes - that not only comply with regulations but incorporate good practice principles and modern innovations.

A key message in her blog is that inclusive, accessible and adaptable design need not be too expensive - particularly if incorporated from the start.

The blog includes examples of how advice from a Housing Occupational Therapist, even on seemingly minor detail, can provide more accessible, adaptable, and inclusive homes.
