Age, Home and Community: A Strategy for Housing for Scotland's Older People: 2012 - 2021

Launched in 2011, the Scottish Government is committed to enabling older people to remain living in their own homes for as long as possible. This means working to ensure that, whether they live in mainstream or specialist housing, older people live in homes which are safe and secure and, where necessary, adapted to meet mobility needs. With substantial increases forecast in the number of people over 60, this has implications for the provision of housing and support services, as financial pressures grow.
