Why are home adaptations to ordinary homes important?

A recent report conducted by TILDA estimates that only 13% of homes are inherently ready to meet the needs of the ageing. This means that most people who are interested in ageing in place will need to make some kind of renovations to their home in order to do so.

Having a home modified for safer living helps seniors maintain a higher quality of life and a greater degree of  independence .  Well designed home adaptations are also a proven way of preventing falls or accidents in the home and are highly cost effective when compared to residential care  or assisted living facilities.

 
 

What supports are available to Irish seniors who want to adapt their homes?

There are several financial supports available to help support people who wish to adapt or modify the home . In the 2019 the Housing Adaptations Grants for Older People and The Mobility aids housing grant scheme issued approx €71 Million in grants to Irish citizens across the local authority and city council network .

These grants are designed to help reduce the dependency on our health services by supporting independent living and ageing in place. You can check your eligibility for a grant , download your grant application form and arrange for quotations from qualified specialists an this page.
