Abstract/Summary The aim of this research project is to provide a theoretical and empirical research foundation for understanding the impact of home maintenance and modification (HMM) services on health, community care and housing outcomes in later life, and for developing more effective public policies relating to provision of these services. The project is predicated on a concern that the potential of HMM services to address the health, care and housing needs of older Australians is yet to be realised, and that this is an under-researched area of policy and service provision. The project aims to develop an approach to the understanding of HMM services in Australia that transcends particular service systems, and that looks holistically at the role of HMM in improving the wellbeing of Australians in later life.
