PROJECT: AN ASSESSMENT OF THE HOUSING, ACCOMMODATION AND SUPPORT NEEDS OF OLDER PEOPLE. EXTRA CARE HOUSING STRATEGY

We reviewed the current models of housing and support, researched future need trends using existing material and secondary data. We developed a qualitative questionnaire and held 7 focus groups with local older people. The outcomes included forecasts of future housing and support requirements over the next 20 years. The impact has been through the development of a countywide housing strategy, including for older people, and the development and remodelling of a range of housing services to better meet future need.

We have subsequently developed for the local authority an extra care housing strategy and delivery programme.
