Remodelling Design Guidance

This document is one of 3 guides commissioned by Trust Housing Association in Scotland recognising the changing future needs of an ageing population and changing best practice and design principles for older people housing. It reflects the desire by Trust to invest in its existing housing for the benefit of current and future tenants.

The provision of well designed, high quality specialist housing for older people is crucial in meeting the housing and support needs of older people and is becoming even more important as more older people are supported at home as opposed to long term care. This paper relates to the remodelling of existing housing developments for older people (very sheltered/extra care, sheltered and amenity).
