Living Well in Old Age: The value of UK housing interventions in supporting mental health and wellbeing in later life

Older people are at an increased risk of developing mental health problems as a result of bereavement, a drop in status in retirement, or a disability that affects how they get about and what they can do.

This report by the Social Care Workforce Research Unit at KCL for HACT is set out in two parts.

  1. It explores what is known about UK housing interventions that are aimed at promoting mental health and wellbeing among older people
  2. It looks at the interconnectedness between housing and health and social care to enable people to live well at home.
