Type: Conference Paper


This report examines and analyses the potential of home modification services to substitute for waged community care services. This investigation explores innovative, and cost effective care solutions given the increasing pressure on care labour markets and care providers within the context of the demographic challenges presented by an ageing population. The report reviews current literature on home modifications and care substitution followed by three case-based cost analyses in order to demonstrate cost impacts and to illustrate how the key variables affect home modification and waged care costs.
