Description: This report investigates the relationship between older home owners and their dwelling types, sizes and locations; the variation in these factors by the age of occupants, their level of ability, household type and cultural background; how efficiently housing stock can be used by older home owners, measures that might help to improve efficient use of the housing stock while improving liveability for older Australians; and the costs and benefits of adaptable and universal housing design.
