Type: Briefing Paper

This Briefing Paper is the third of three produced by the Institute of Public Care (IPC) for the Housing Learning and Improvement Network to provide a concise overview of key issues highlighted in the joint IPC / ADASS / Housing LIN resource pack, 'Strategic Housing for Older People: Planning, designing and delivering housing that older people want'.

This paper is aimed at both providers and commissioners of housing for older people, to help them to:

  • Understand and be clear how sheltered housing can help meet health and wellbeing outcomes of older people.
  • Review their sheltered housing to assess its fitness to meet the future housing needs and aspirations of older people.
  • Consider the range of options for change and decide on the best approach locally.
