For future living: Innovative approaches to join up housing + health

This report from IPPR looks at how England's housing should respond to the pressures of an ageing population. The link between population ageing and increased health costs is well recognised, but the link between good housing and good health is less well understood. The report focuses on reform options in mainstream housing and highlights the weaknesses in current housing stock, considers the need for greater adaptability and how GPs could better prescribe adaptations where there is a health 'dividend', and recommends changes to improve the care and accommodation options available to older people.
