Housing for older people

Place of publication:

As people are living longer, older people are making up an increasing proportion of England’s population. Housing organisations need to adapt to this, regardless of whether they provide special housing and services for older people. Many older people live in the same kind of homes as younger people. Some older people want or need specialised housing but wish to remain living as part of a community. This strategy for housing older people recognises older people’s needs for housing and other services, and the need for our capital spending on such housing.

42p.
Place of publication:
London

The quality of mental health services for older people in Wales varies greatly depending on where they live, and there are severe shortages of specialist care when they can no longer be supported at home. Carers are generally well supported but their needs should be assessed more consistently and staff in residential homes need better training. Report highlights over 30 examples of good practice, but says that this needs to be shared more widely. Calls for more partnership working between health and social care and the introduction of defined minimum standards.

Domestic spaces: uses and meanings in the daily lives of older people

Author:
PERCIVAL John
Journal article citation:
Ageing and Society, 22(6), November 2002, pp.729-749.
Publisher:
Cambridge University Press

Examines older people's everyday routines and their implications for older people's uses and perceptions of domestic spaces in both mainstream and sheltered housing settings. It draws on qualitative data collected during a large-scale survey of the housing and support needs of older people, and the responses of 60 informants to personal interviews. Conclusions suggest that older people require adequate, accessible and personalised domestic spaces in order to facilitate routines, responsibilities and reflection.
