New dynamics of ageing research programme - Seeking a new, interdisciplinary methodology to quantify the benefits of housing interventions for older people



Demographic changes mean that housing services and technology enabling older people to live well at home could be of considerable importance. But quantified evidence of the economic and social worth of these housing interventions is scarce, and evidence is not well accepted across disciplines. This network has been set up to bring in academics from a wide range of disciplines. Its purpose is to develop a robust, integrated methodology to measure the cost-benefits and quality of life outcomes of housing interventions for older people. At the end of the initial year, a proposal will be submitted for research that will implement the methodology and produce some high quality research findings.
