Living with Disability in Inaccessible Housing: Social, Health and Economic Impacts; University of Melbourne, 2020 

Greater mobility impairments increased the probability of falls, pain and poor self-rated health although this effect was significantly moderated by external housing modifications. Among older adults with severe mobility impairments, external housing modifications reduced the probability of falls by 3% (1%-6%), pain by 6% (4%-8%), and poor health by 4% (2%-5%). Moreover, external housing modifications reduced the probability of no social activities by 6% (5%-7%) and moving home by 4% (2%-5%) even among those without any mobility impairments. Internal housing modifications had similar, but less consistent effects on the disability outcomes.”

“…inaccessible housing severely harms the dignity, freedom, social inclusion, economic productivity, health and wellbeing of people with mobility restrictions; and, that housing built to accessible standard can deliver substantial benefits for people with mobility restrictions, across all these life domains. These findings have both economic and social justice implications, which, as argued by Dalton and Carter (2020), are closely interconnected.”
