We all want a positive experience of ageing, to be valued and to live in the places we feel connected to. Good Homes for Good Lives focuses on helping older people keep up with repairs and maintenance so they can stay in their own homes and communities for longer.
Their research found that older people often put off repairs because they feel it’s too hard and would cost too much. But there is a greater cost – their health suffers if the house is cold, uncomfortable or unsafe.
They’ve transformed their findings into practical action: three check-list tools that help people identify what work needs to be done and who is the best person to do it.
