Research & Resources
Homes Renewed partners on research such as message testing, product and design criteria and incentive mechanisms.
Homes Renewed monitors the adoption, implementation and results of the movement to update homes throughout the country. We publish the findings so learning is linear instead of circular…wheel reinvention stops here!
Many reports and publications express the idea that the most economical and desirable aging and care alternative is the home environment. Homes Renewed magnifies this by bringing the voices and issues to one table.
Following are web and publication resources you will find useful.
