Design Guides

Home adaptations can increase independence, help to prevent falls, reduce the length of a stay in hospital and delay care home admission.

Adaptations can range from large scale extensions to fitting a grab rail in someone’s home, but a badly designed adaptation can be worse than no adaptation at all. These pages contain guidance from Foundations and a wide range of other sources to help you design high-quality adaptations that function well and look good too.

If you are a member of the public looking for help with home adaptations, please contact your local home improvement agency.
