"Appropriate housing underpins the health and wellbeing of older people, promotes independence and reduces demand on health and social care services. Research shows there is already a significant shortfall in specialist housing units across England. Without swift and well-planned action that situation will deteriorate as our population ages.
This tool hits all the buttons! It can help local authorities and our partners work together to identify and fill a shortfall of specialist housing for older people and meet new demand from our ageing population."
