Abstract Since the early 1990s, we have engaged in the development of methodology for the assessment of person-environment fit in housing and the determination of how such dynamics interact with aspects of health. Ultimately, all projects are aimed at practice implementation. Our research efforts represent methodology development, problem-oriented studies among older people and individuals with disabilities, and solution-oriented projects in interaction with users and practitioners, aimed to implement research-based solutions and evaluate their effects. The aim of this article is to provide an overview of the strategies used, challenges met, and experiences gathered while implementing research-based strategies to overcome housing accessibility problems.
