Universal Design & Housing- ‘Universal Design Home’: International Conference on Universal Design in the Built Environment: MUSAWAH: sharing the world

Author: Bridge, C.
Year: 2009
Type: Conference Paper

Abstract:

The Home Modification and Maintenance Information Clearinghouse Project was funded by the Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care of NSW in 2002. The foundation for this innovative project arose out of governmental recognition that significant issues existed regarding current home modification and adaptable housing practice in Australia. This paper explores the importance of home modifications and universal design for people with disabilities, the ways in which housing interventions can influence human performance, making the conduct of everyday activities safter, easier and less painful.
