A case study of a review of services in five sheltered schemes and three linked semi-sheltered schemes for older people, carried out by Pembrokeshire Housing. Based on co-production principles, the review included full engagement with residents and used their unique expertise as a prerequisite for designing a service that would meet the needs of older people now and in the future. The case study looks at the stages of the co-production process and outlines key learning points. Learning points included being open and honest with residents, which helped develop trust and ensuring co-production is a genuine process. The co-production process also led to the identification of untapped resources among staff and residents. (Edited publisher abstract)

Retirement housing 2016

Authors:

Place of publication:
London

Examines the demand and supply for purpose-built housing for older people across the UK. It includes an analysis of the equity release potential of downsizing, as well as highlighting the planning landscape for the retirement housing sector. It is estimated that by 2039, one in 12 people will be aged 80 or over. The report reveals that just 3 per cent of new-build units in the pipeline or currently under construction are designated ‘elderly’ or ‘sheltered’ housing. It argues that supply of retirement housing needs to increase five-fold while downsizing to a home with one less bedroom will release around £52,000 in equity on average across England and Wales, with large regional variations. The report outlines the current demographic trends and the impact of an ageing population, the role of housing and the supply side of the housing market, and how the policy framework should address the lack of housing for older people.

Supported housing for older people in the UK: an evidence review: summary

Authors:
PANNELL Jenny, BLOOD Imogen
Publisher:
Joseph Rowntree Foundation
Publication year:
2012
Pagination:
4p.
Place of publication:
York

Sheltered housing has changed significantly over the past decade, yet has received little attention from researchers and policy-makers. Changes to funding and benefits for older people's housing and support services need underpinning by robust evidence. This study examines existing evidence about the quality of life offered by sheltered and retirement housing and identifies factors that may improve or reduce quality of life. Eighty publications with material on housing with support and further background publications were included, along with a detailed analysis of 24 academic and resident-led research reports. Key points suggest that: there is limited recent research evidence on the quality of accommodation, services and residents in the UK's 550,000 units of housing with support for older people; this lack of evidence is a cause for concern for residents, providers and commissioners of housing, support and care; and diminishing levels of on-site staffing have affected quality of life for some residents.
